Social Media Fellowship
Adventures From The Bedrooms of African Women is still receiving applications for the 2022 Adventurous Social Media, Writing and Visual Arts (SWV) Fellowship Program. The aim of these fellowships is to seek out, support and amplify feminist content creators and their own singular vision.
The Social Media Fellowship in particular aims to support Fellows who are interested in exploring Social Media for storytelling, resistance work and community building. Social Media Fellows get to choose any aspect that they would like to focus on in Social Media Management, Content Creation, Strategy, Analysis and Reporting.
Depending on their interest, Social Media Fellows will gain knowledge on Social Media advocacy, best practices in social media management, creating social media content for change, creating and managing social media campaigns, explore new digital tools and strategies for engagement, develop methods to assess the effectiveness of social media outreach efforts and how to build and maintain an online community.
Part of the learning components of the Fellowship Program includes monthly seminars which Fellows are required to attend.
The Social Media Fellowship program will run for 5 months and the successful applicant who participates in the program will receive a monthly stipend of 400 USD.
