Havas Village Genève: ink-redible sneakers for Le Grand Théâtre de Genève

With a repositioning, the Grand Théâtre de Genève wants to open itself up to a wider - especially younger - audience and break up the image of an institution previously perceived as too traditional and conservative. Together with Havas Village Genève, a sneaker campaign was launched for this purpose.

After 140 years, the cultural venue "Le Grand Théâtre de Genève" has decided to launch its most ambitious project yet: the renovation of the entire building - as well as the introduction of a more contemporary program. The renovation has offered a unique opportunity to share a new vision and change the way Millennials and Gen Z see the world.

Within the framework of this project, the idea of "ink-redible sneakers" was born. During the renovation, old materials of the GTG were collected and, with the support of the shoe brand Camper as well as the artist Fichtre, turned into a unique colored ink that connects the past of the cultural site with its future.

Personalized shoe boxes were then sent empty to dozens of selected influencers and editors. All they had to do was submit their shoe size to receive the sneakers as an invitation to the GTG reopening.
