We are very pleased to invite you to MOSI-ALONG’s first Social Media Festival: to take place on 23rd September 2011, from 2-7pm, in the Annexe at Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 5NH.
Since our launch in April, the MOSI-ALONG project, in association with the Museum of Science & Industry, MIMAS, LSEN and People’s Voice Media, has been working with community groups in Manchester to uncover local and personal history stories, and sharing them using social media.
On 23rd September, we will showcase some of the work that’s been done, and share our experiences of using social media for learning. We will also unveil the project’s plans for expansion in collaboration with Manchester’s students, pupils, museums and the BBC.
The event will also host the prizegiving ceremony for the myMOSI competition, including an iPad 2 as first prize! There is still time to enter, the flyer is attached.
The day will be an informal festival, so you are very welcome to attend all or any part of the day. Here’s a draft agenda (for updates please see the blog page):
From 2-3pm, we will welcome guests and introduce the project.
From 3-5pm, participants can explore some of the contributions displayed and projected in the room, and discuss the project and social media with team members and future partners.
From 5-6.30pm, we will announce the winners of the myMOSI competition as judged by a panel, and explain how these contributions fit into the wider aims of the project.
Teas, coffees and cake will be available throughout.
Please RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to hearing from you.
The MOSI-ALONG team.
