SMW Lagos 2019 - Stories



When I saw the Social Media Week 2019 Global theme, the first thing that came to mind was the famous quote said by Spider-man’s Uncle Ben, “With great power comes great responsibility”.  I must honestly say, it is so true.

African culture and tradition is rooted in storytelling. Historically this has been our primary way of communication. Our stories serve as a reference point and are integral to our identity as Africans. Our use of story as a tool beyond communication has always been paramount. The current digital paradigm however has allowed for the amplification of our stories and enabled us to have tremendous impact beyond our communities, our countries and the continent’s borders. It is also the case, that with this impact comes great responsibility and an obligation to use our collective influence to move Africa forward.

At #SMWLAGOS 2019 we’ll take a deep dive into the power of the stories we tell and how as content creators, policymakers, brands, journalists and citizens we can influence our community, customers, audience and constituents for the greater good. – Culled from SMW Lagos

Participants will get to mingle and network with stamp & postcard collectors and travel & culture enthusiasts by using social media platforms to redefine communication and encourage people to send handwritten mails in this digital era.

The hangout  will include the following:

  • Postcard Exercise:  Sign up for and send a postcard or/and send a time capsule letter to yourself or loved ones
