Giving Back

Kekst CNC brings the same approach to community as its business: global reach, with a local level of attention and care.


Kekst CNC is proud to support ArtsConnection, which partners with elementary, middle, and high schools across all five boroughs of New York City to integrate the arts – dance, theater, visual arts, media, and music – into students’ overall learning and development.

As part of that relationship, Kekst CNC is currently hosting at its offices Viewpoints, Stories and Connections, an exhibition of original student artwork from participants in ArtsConnection’s Student Art Program, which showcases works by young artists in grades 6-12 from a wide cross-section of New York City’s public schools.

Refugee Community Kitchen

Refugee Community Kitchen serve hot, nourishing meals to displaced people in the UK and France. Since 2015 they have been serving nutritious food without judgement to those fleeing war, poverty, persecution and climate change.




Innovation Day

Innovation Day is an annual initiative that brings together individuals from across the Publicis Groupe to collectively solve the business and communications challenges facing a number of social enterprises.  These enterprises are drawn from a wide range of causes, from supporting refugees to innovative technology that identifies the safest routes for women walking alone.  Each year, Kekst CNC contributes its specific skills to these diverse teams, sharing knowledge and challenging both the enterprises and each other to think in different ways and explore new approaches to solving business challenges.

Hello World!

Kekst CNC in Stockholm provides ad hoc PR and communication support to Hello World!, an association aimed at supporting digital creation for young people through summer camps and weekend meetups. The focus is to encourage girls and people from less privileged backgrounds to get access to digital creation and programming skills, and the ultimate purpose is to support the competitiveness of Swedish businesses, which are expected to need an additional 70,000 programmers in the next decade.

Social Impact Accelerator

Thinking outside the box, challenging the status quo and implementing new ideas – this way of thinking is precisely what social entrepreneurs and Kekst CNC have in common. That is why we have partnered with Ashoka, the global network for social entrepreneurs. As part of our Social Impact Accelerator – Kekst CNC’s annual social innovation day – we help Ashoka fellows increase their societal impact through communication.
