Presentation & Talk: How to Respond Instead of React in the Digital Age

Description

Cultural commentator and stylist Ayishat Akanbi will give a new presentation: “The digital discourse that shapes our cultural landscape is a hotbed of conflict, shaming, one-upmanship, and misunderstanding. It’s hard to be an avid online user, without becoming disillusioned by the eagerness to see the worst in people. But I do believe we can use the Internet to further our understanding, and create multiple avenues for empathy if we are disciplined in our use. I offer ten practical steps to help us navigate the linguistic landmine of social media.” A talk with Polish writer Agata Pyzik and audience Q&A follows.


The event is part of the INTER:FACE project commissioned by the Municipality of Kraków and Kraków Festival Office.
