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)
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)
