1- Meet new people!! Like minded individuals that are active in their communities and open to strengthening their connection to home. The Speak Series viewing is an open space for everyone willing to learn and have positive interactions.
2- Premier of SPEAK SERIES EP:2 | Un Changement Social En Ligne is a bilingual documentary video series based in Montreal capturing honest & raw conversations between youth stemming from the African diaspora. Last year, the screening of our first episode was followed by a deep conversation on the diasporic Identity. This year we want to take that conversation a step further by discussing the effects and importance of social media.
3-Social Media is everywhere! Discover the importance of social media and what it means for Africans in the diaspora. Questions like, “How through social media, are we rewriting a new narrative for ourselves as Africans and how through them, are we reaffirming our identities?” will be discussed. Stop by and be apart of the conversation.
4- Workshop: Do you want to learn more about ways you can take advantage of the different platforms available to you? How you can use social media to connect to like minded African individuals? Then this workshop is for you !
