From May 19 through the 22nd, we’ll be at the FIRST Canadian Social Forum!
We’re very excited to be attending this event and offering our workshop: The Power of Social Media, which we are co-presenting with our friends, Athena Lothian from the Métis Nation of Alberta and Yvonne Poitras Pratt from the University of Calgary.
Our session is designed to explain and demystify the term “social media” and demonstrate the advantages, ease and fun (!) that interactive Internet practises can offer individuals and organizations. Athena and Yvonne will lead a hands-on Digital Storytelling component of the workshop which CITIZENShift will then host on the site!
The full program for the Forum is currently on the CSF website. It’s going to be hard to chose which workshops to attend as they all look so engaging. And, for that reason, FOLLOW OUR LIVE BLOG, right here throughout the three day event and follow us on Twitter.
It is a great privilege to be collaborating on such a significant Forum–one that seeks to address and find solutions to poverty. I hope you’ll enjoy the reactions and opinions of this event in the blog posts to come. Stay tuned!
