What will you create next?

We’re bringing the magic of Pinterest to Cannes for another year on the Pier. From June 18th through the 21st, we’re opening up the Pinterest Tasteshop to inspire you to create your next great idea.

Scroll down to see what’s in store, from expert-packed panels to activities with up-and-coming creatives.

On the Pier & at the Palais

Join us at the Pinterest Pier for a week full of interactive experiences. Located on the Carlton Hotel beach, you can stop by anytime from 10am-3pm on Monday, or 9am-5pm from Tuesday to Thursday.

We’ve also got a special spot at the Palais where you’ll find us from 9am to 6pm, Monday through Friday. Get grab-and-go ideas for where to eat and what to do while you’re in town, selected by the Cannes Lions jurors themselves.

(Heads up: you'll need an official Cannes Lions badge to get in to the Palais OR your RSVP to get onto the Pier. RSVP soon! )

The (not-so) secret lives of creatives

Start your week with a kick of creative inspiration. Hear from Pinterest Co-Founder Evan Sharp and Wieden+Kennedy Chief Creative Officer Colleen DeCourcy on how technology has enabled the creative process and where they think the future of creativity is heading. (Hint: Secret Pinterest boards and visual technology are involved...)

Live at the Lumière Theatre at 2pm on Monday, June 18.
