Internet activism isn't going anywhere and it will continue to become more pertinent as brands keep monopolising this. We, as creatives and more, need to be conscious of our biases and how they shape our ideas. If you can't be the clued in person working in house for a brand or pitching agency side, people will continue to be marginalised by careless actions and the internet used against people by isolating communities.
The aim of this session is to discuss how we can be more conscious of our own privileges and biases when communicating online and to improve our work within the industry. How can we direct our power and creative energy towards unifying rather than isolating people? The goal of the session is to create a tool or guide for how to look out for red flags, be a better person online & increase awareness of our biases, applicable on a campaign/online community level. By creating a toolkit based on this space, participants can continue to open up the dialogue in their own workspaces.
