It’s that day of the year again …when the event submission for Social Media Week opens!
Last year you surprised us with many events submitted on day 1, we hope this year you’ll be as engaged!
In the past weeks we have met many of you and heard many brilliant ideas, now it’s time to put those ideas on paper (oh well, virtually speaking).
Submit your events here and contribute to another diverse and innovative week for September.
The criteria for events are the same as last year: the event must be free, open, Social Media–related, and happening in Glasgow between the 24th and the 28th of September.
This year, as already mentioned, we are considering running themes or streams through the week. We will define some with you and will be announcing them later, with the clear intention not to cramp your creativity. For now, feel free to submit any idea that fits under the general theme of “Empowering Change Through Collaboration“.
We’re also planning some cross-city events, to make SMW an even more global and interactive event. So if you have an idea that would involve another SMW city (or more than one), please let us know, we’re looking forward to hearing about it.
You can submit your event until August 21st, after which point only selected further events will be added. So don’t miss the opportunity to have your event in the first announcement of the global schedule.
As you know, we are hosting an open brainstorming session next Tuesday, the 12th of June at 6pm. Please feel free to join us to throw some ideas around and give us some suggestions on what can make the next SMW an unforgettable one. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join, but be quick, only few places left.
We’ll also take this opportunity to thank all those who have already used the get involved form to express their interest in participating in SMWGla in some way or form. Please keep on using the form to express your willingness to collaborate with us…and if you don’t really like forms, you have plenty of other options..FB, twitter, and a’that… but please do get in touch, we’re always happy to hear from you.
