Advice . Presentations . Films . Podcasts . Happenings
Digital Women UK have been invited to host a stall at the Web We Want Festival 2015, now in its third year at the Southbank Centre. We will be located in the Web We Want Interactive Market, a central meeting point and drop-in area with stalls where visitors can play with new technologies and software, watch demos, participate in workshops or sign up to campaigns and explore the many ways the web is used – and misused.
Digital Women UK co-founder Joy Francis and academic, novelist and anti trolling campaigner Sunny Singh will be on hand to offer advice on using social media to your advantage, building your brand, finding your audiences online and how to do that safely. Watch filmed interviews and presentations with women in tech, the arts and online media. Also help shape our next phase of workshops, masterclasses and talks, and take part in podcasts and a photographic montage about your experience of engaging on the web and your digital confidence.
Antonia Anni – What is UX?
Come and be a participant in an insightful and creative presentation by User Experience (UX) consultant and designer Antonia Anni. Using physical objects, including mobile phones, Antonia will demonstrate what UX is: strategy, management, research, design, build and delivery. The driving focus of the presentation is to highlight the importance of the user’s perspective, including perceptions, attitudes and emotions regarding the creation and completion of a product or service.
Staying Safe: Tackling sexism and trolling online with Sunny Singh
Author, academic, and anti-trolling advocate Sunny Singh will give an interactive presentation on tackling trolling and sexism. She will look at and answer questions on the best techniques or approaches to make social sharing a more confident and less intimidating experience, how to choose a social media strategy that works best for you and the opportunities and obstacles presented by digital platforms.
