GUANTE - Taking Advantage of the Power of Social Media - Pre-registration required
05/20/2014 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
While Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube and all the other social media networks can feel like an obstacle course for many, they're also very powerful. This introductory workshop will go over the basics-- not just in terms of what these platforms can do, but how we can use them most effectively. Join hip hop artist and two-time National Poetry Slam champion Guante for an interactive, resource-sharing discussion and workshop on these issues and more. Pre-registration required.
