Content Planning workshop led by Junction Creative Solutions. (Epicentr Academy 2014)

Epicentr Academy is a student-run summer social media program designed to introduce students and young professionals in the fundamentals of digital media. Through this 10-week program, we strive to prepare them with the right tools for real-life situations, by inviting industry professionals to come in to speak and mentor the students. The aim of Epicentr Academy is to bridge the gap between what’s taught in schools and the skills needed in the real-world workplace.

From June to August, you’ll participate in 10 workshops, held weekly on Thursday evenings in Downtown, Vancouver, designed to build on your knowledge and passion for social media. We’ll provide opportunities for you to practice developing social media strategies and campaigns, review case studies, and learn about metrics and analytics.

As a budding professional in the Communications or Marketing sector, this is your opportunity to apply your learning and build real projects to hone your skills, build your portfolio, and gain competitive advantage.
