About the event

As part of the 'Culture in Quarantine' initiative, we are hosting two webinars in collaboration with Unlimited.

How to use short-form content to make an impact on social media.

Are you trying to work out what would be your best short form content for Facebook or Twitter? Wondering which platform to use, and whether it’s worth trying TikTok or Instagram Reels?

Hosted by The Space and Unlimited, in association with Arts Council England, the webinar will answer these questions and more with focused conversations and a Q&A session.

Our speakers will offer fundamental dos and don’ts around developing and sharing great short form social media content that can help raise your profile and build an online community. We’ll look at ways in which we can cut through the noise in a busy environment and at the key principles around creating effective sustainable short form content.

We’ll cover:

  • What trends are we noticing, and what can we learn from these?
  • What might success look like for you?
  • Key principles and tips for great short form social content.
  • Practical tips on creating, or using existing, content within current constraints.
