Event: Sayasafe Workshop - Content creation 101

On July 6, we welcomed women from the African diaspora eager to learn how to create engaging content, mobilize an online community and take the digital world by storm with their creative genius. This workshop, entitled “Content Creation 101”, was specially designed for those wishing to begin and perfect their skills in this art.

These three social media experts shared their valuable tips on how to use social media to empower each other.

The project Sayasafe

Sayasafe, a project funded by the City of Montreal, focuses on both digital and urban security for young women from the African diaspora based in Montreal. It aims to create a safer, more respectful and inclusive digital and urban environment for these agents of change, through training workshops, inspirational conferences, educational digital resources and discussion groups that promote positive initiatives.

In short, through workshops like this one, we aim to create a safe environment where you can learn, practice and discuss issues that are essential to our times. It’s a chance for you to take back control of your presence in digital and urban spaces – and make it a true representation of who you are.
