WELCOME TO MODE21

ABOUT US

Can creativity be learned? We think the answer is yes. If you are curious and have an open mind, you can learn about creativity, and try to take it up a notch. Whether you are a student, an aspiring writer, painter, film buff or working professional, you will find our interactive, creativity-focused courses stimulating.

Mode21 is a collective of creative, highly experienced individuals, and we are interested in meeting those who want to go beyond textbooks and learn and debate. We wish to gather curious and humble minds, and create extraordinary thoughts and things.

Creativity intrigues us and we are good at spotting ideas with potential. Backgrounds in advertising and digital agencies have exposed us to creativity in various forms – music, filmmaking, writing, posts; and it is this knowledge and skill that we would like to pass on. We do not claim profound expertise in any domain or field (except advertising), but we have an excellent overview of them all.
