Bringing the Soul directly to consumers through interactive events and test-drive opportunities in a 10-city tour, the program mirrors the Kia Soul ad campaign’s “a new way to roll” slogan by partnering with young and modern thought leaders, brought together to form The Soul Collective, from different disciplines including music, film, design, and gaming to show exactly “how they roll” through their respective mediums.

The Soul Collective includes four days of events in each city, designed and curated by Collective members who show exactly how they roll through their art and talents. The Soul Collective events feature high-profile DJs, live music performances, video screenings and art installations. On-site Kia Motors representatives will educate consumers about the Soul, facilitate test-drives and provide local dealer incentive information.

“Soul embodies Kia’s current focus on innovation, safety and design and is a game-changer for the brand with the ability to gain the attention of youthful consumers,” said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing, KMA. “Illustrating of all of the ideas and personalizable options behind the Soul, Kia Motors is mixing cultural innovators with younger audiences, not only through unique and interactive online methods, but in urban locations through a mix of modern music, art and cultural events.”
