Common Adobe Max #blkcreatives Feature Pic

Thanks to a reminder from Laura OG, we were reminded to register for Adobe Max 2020 The Creativity Conference happening THIS week October 20–22. Thanks to a push from Kelsey, we decided to peruse the speaker’s list to learn about the Black Creatives who’d be speaking at this year’s conference and it’s a long list!

So just in case you’re like us and what to check out the Black people featured list, we did the work for you!

Simply copy and paste the speaker’s name in the search bar HERE to find the sessions they’re apart of.

Sign up for the conference here.

Adobe MAX is three full days of luminary speakers, celebrity appearances, musical performances, global collaborative art projects, and 350+ sessions — and all at no cost. You also get to make your own schedule and choose which sessions you want to attend. Register for it here.
