We all noticed the major impact of internet in African businesses lately. We also noticed that African digital influencers are gradually changing the game, drawing the interest of brands and big companies. Most of them come from the creative sphere : designers, photographers, models, architects, etc. But what does this diversity represent for Social Media today? Fashion Africa Now and VR Creative Agency will try to answer this question during the next edition of Social Media Week ( from February 27 to March 3).
Together with influencers based in Lagos and New York, Fashion Africa Now and VR Creative Agency will discuss the impact of social media for the creative industries. The discussions will also focus on the importance of representing diverse voices and African perspectives in media. The tech and creative scenes in Africa are hubs of entrepreneurship and innovation, it’s time for the rest of the World to wake up and take notice.
The international panel will be screened live to Social Media Week participants in Hamburg, NewYork & Lagos!
