INTRO – We Need To Talk: Social Media Updates vs. Real, Raw, Storytelling

Amplify your organization’s message through Social Media by finding a balance between personal and professional storytelling. How do you create a transparency that will engage your audience and increase credibility? How do you create a voice that carries the culture of your cause? If you’re looking to one-up your organization’s Social media game, this 30 minute session is a good intro to inspiring some good changes for the changes you’re trying to inspire. (Romila Barryman)

Facebook Storytelling

This session will cover the creative process in selecting images / typography, creating the images, and the strategy behind uploading to Facebook. We will also be creating “facebook postcards” during the workshop, so come prepared with a few images and quotes that can be combined. (Christian Mosley and Jen Cook)

Video storytelling

In this session we’ll offer an overview of what makes for effective video and then break into groups to create our own videos using accessible tools like cell phones and tablets. Groups will be guided on how they can tell their own story of self in a 1 minute video. (Eoghan Moriarty and Michael Stevenson)
