Thrilling storytelling for social media
Stories are one of the most popular, engaging, and stable formats across social media, including Instagram, Facebook, and more. They can also be tricky: engagement and performance require some expertise. This workshop will help you develop better stories by turning the mysterious creative process into a sequence of understandable and reproducible steps. Moreover, it will help you harness the stories’ power for the benefit of your city and its communities.
In our event workshop you will:
> gain the skills, essential to create the stories’ content, including basic technical skills, storyboarding, and repackaging,
> get the insights on the Instagram algorithm to become much more visible to your urban community,
> become capable of creating engaging, interactive stories.
You and your stories are at the very center of the event's Live Session. You will practice your storyboard creation skills within a small group and develop your own new stories' format(s), capitalizing on the content exchange and collaborations with the participants from other cities.
