Have you ever wanted to use social media for more than sharing pictures of cats? Not sure how to make your views heard in this digital age? Wonder what Instagram and Twitter can offer you? Want to stay connected and informed but aren’t sure where to start?

Social media has become an important means of communication, for everything from connecting with friends and the wider community to civic action and protesting. We want to help communities stay connected and informed, so however you want to use social media – this workshop will give you the tools.

The workshop will be led by the EVOC 150 team and will cover:
- What can I use social media for?
- Which social media platform is right for me?
- How to set up an account
- Posting on social media

The workshop will be aimed at women with little experience of using social media and will also be suitable for those who want to build on their skills. 

Please bring your own laptop, as this will be a hands-on session.

EVOC has been supporting Edinburgh's citizens and voluntary and community organisations for 150 years. During that time, our history has been intertwined with that of pioneering, brave and daring women like Dr Elsie Inglis, who defied the British Government to set up field hospitals during WW1 and campaigned for women's suffrage and Flora Stevenson, who campaigned for girls gaining access to education.
