Screen Shot 2017-10-06 at 6.58.03 am.jpgRARE, the diversity initiative led by two of Australia's leading creatives, is pleased to announce the availability of eight, fully funded scholarships to attend the masterclass between 20 - 24 November, thanks to Clemenger BBDO Melbourne.

As part of its sponsorship of RARE, Clemenger BBDO has placed eight places on offer to industry talent who aren't able to obtain sponsorship via their agencies or those that aren't able to self-fund attendance at the event.
Valued at $800 each, the eight places are now open for application on the RARE website, https://rare-syd.com by nominating that you're applying for a scholarship in the application process.

Says Nick Garrett, CEO, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne: "RARE is one of those fantastic initiatives that cause you to sit up and take notice, and it's a huge honour to do our bit and help support Stef and the team. I firmly believe that diversity of thinking will future proof our industry and we're happy to support those who can't otherwise fund their way to the event."

RARE is a four-day masterclass featuring industry leaders from around the world, aimed at giving creative talent from diverse backgrounds the network and knowledge they need to succeed.

Says Stefanie DiGiavincenzo, RARE co-founder and Clemenger BBDO creative director: "The response we've had to date has been incredible in that it's firmly validated what we're doing and why we're doing it. These scholarships are incredibly important for those who otherwise might've been prohibited by cost, and we're so grateful to Clemenger for making them possible."

Further information on the RARE program and applications for tickets to the masterclass are available online now at https://rare-syd.com. 80 spots are available, with applications closing on Sunday, October 15.

All proceeds from the event will be put towards grants and initiatives that further deliver on RARE's objective to boost diversity.
