General Assembly Campus East

Technology changes at a rapid pace; however, as human beings, our innate need to be social and communicate our identity hasn’t changed much over time. Before written language, oral stories and images were used to convey information – connecting with one another and sharing is built into our DNA. Today we have more ways to express ourselves than ever before: text, photos, music, video, illustrations, animations, graphics, MEMEs, GIFs, selfies, animated selfies, emoticons, emojis, bitmojis, 360/immersive video, streaming video, podcasts, and more!

Our panelists, comprised of pioneers in virtual reality, data visualization, podcasting, and content creation for the mobile and social web, will explore the ways in which we’ll express ourselves in 2016. Whether you’re a marketer wondering what platforms and content trends to consider or if you’re just curious about the psychology behind why and how we share, join us and be inspired to express yourself or your brand in this brave new digital world!
