Last week we announced the locations of four Content Hubs, each of which will focus on a specific theme. Over the course of this week, we are going to focus on highlighting each Hub and some of the specific topics that will be featured, as well as how you or your organization can contribute to the programming.
The confirmed partnerships include: Science and Technology Hub, hosted by Google; Business, Media, and Communications Hub, hosted by global advertising agency JWT; People & Society Hub, hosted by The Paley Center for Media; and Music, Gaming & Sports, hosted by Red Bull Space. As we mentioned in our announcement, we are also launching a fifth Hub which will cover Arts & Culture, the location of which we will share in the coming week or so.
GET INVOLVED IN PEOPLE & SOCIETY
Today’s spotlight is on the People & Society Hub at The Paley Center for Media. The theme itself is clearly fairly broad, so we have decided to focus on the following topic areas in terms of how they are impacted by developments in social and mobile media:
- Health & technology
- Government & Civil Society
If you or your organization is interested in curating a session and helping to shape the programming at the People & Society Hub, we would love to hear from you. Sessions are typically two hours in length and can either be a series of talks, a panel, a workshop or seminar. We encourage our guest curators to think creatively about their sessions and consider designing an experience that moves beyond traditional conference formats.
To submit a session idea, please visit the event registration page and reference which Hub you are interested in, in your application.
If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities at the People & Society Hub, we have some really exciting ways for brands to participate in the experience and contribute to the programming. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The People & Society Hub is brought to you by Social Media Week & The Paley Center for Media with additional curation from ThinkSocial & GOOD.
