On Monday, Jo made a rousing case for the power of words to engage people in social. Well tomorrow Thursday 12th July from 7.30pm BST (12.30pm EST) we’d like to explore the other side of the coin: how social photography is influencing the way in which brands tell stories. If you’re fascinated by Pinterest, confused by Instagram or addicted to Flickr, #CurveLive is for you!
We’ve been working with Getty Images to create #CurveLive, which will feature four short talks discussing the impact of social photography and digital sharing on campaigns and brands, followed by a Q&A. The event will be streamed live from The Hospital Club in London on the Getty Curve website, with the opportunity for the online audience to contribute to the discussion and ask questions to the speakers via the #CurveLive hashtag on Twitter.
If you are in London and would like to attend in person, please drop Getty a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to offer a question or comment before, during or after the event, please do so on Twitter using #CurveLive.
