[Net2Beirut] Frame Your Story: How the New ‘Completure’ App Can Change Citizen Journalism
AltCity is launching Net2Beirut, the first ever local NetSquared group in Lebanon!
During April, global NetSquared groups are organizing digital storytelling events and we’re joining in with one centered on the new ‘Completure’ app and how it has the potential to change citizen journalism and digital storytelling of that nature.
We totally understand if this means nothing to you just yet but read on if you’re curious- you just may become part of a budding global community if you’re interested.
The NetSquared vision “is to make it easy, meaningful, and fun for people and organizations to get the information, visibility and support they need to accelerate the impact of social-benefit projects.”
Net2Beirut is the local NetSquared group that AltCity is organizing.
Now, we can call out to entrepreneurs, designers, developers, or ANYONE with an eye for social change to meet-up during Net2Beirut events to rub shoulders, pick brains, and simply connect– with each other and the online NetSquared community.
=== Schedule === April 18th 2013
Come on over to AltCity, grab a cold drink, and mingle with some like-minded people before the event kicks off.
First, a quick introduction to NetSquared by your host.
Second, Mark Malkoun will share the story of Completure, the app he created, before diving into how it’s a useful tool that has the potential to change citizen journalism & to provide a new avenue for digital storytelling.
Whether you’d like to learn more about NetSquared or Completure, stay aboard for this totally informal Q&A session.
If you’re intrigued by the app, then download Completure for FREE and check it out at the space with the creator, himself.
If that’s not your scene, then chill at the bar and hang out- there must be some cool stuff you’d want to talk about at this point!
