Andrew Dickson works for Wieden+Kennedy as the copywriter for Travel Oregon and as one of the directors of WK12, the agency's in-house experimental ad school. Prior to working in advertising, he was a filmmaker and musician before finding his voice as a performance artist. He's premiered shows about xenophobia, eBay and Selling Out at the PICA TBA festival, touring internationally with his piece AC Dickson: eBay PowerSeller. He'll be returning to the TBA festival with a new show called Life Coach this fall. His creative morning talk will offer some details and insights on his transition from making art to making ads and back again, and explore ways in which we might better support artists.
This month’s event will be in the atrium at Wieden+Kennedy. W+K is an independent, creatively driven advertising agency that creates strong and provocative relationships between good companies and their customers.

Icebreaker fused nature and technology to create a lightweight system of fine merino garments that keep you cool, dry and comfortable in the heat without the itch of traditional wool.
