Filipinos enjoy being connected with friends and loved ones, and this comes alive in their passion to create and share content online. This is why YouTube and mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. have teamed up to bring about Creator Camp LIVE. It is a series of online events and workshops where established and aspiring YouTube creators can learn from the broader YouTube community, industry experts, and leading content creators on how to pivot and be effective during this pandemic. Some of the lessons include relevant and resourceful content, meaningful collaborations, creator wellbeing, and building a strong brand.

The series, which starts on June 25, Thursday, will feature Filipino vloggers Erwan Heussaff, Wil Dasovich, and Alodia Gosiengfiao. They will impart their valuable insights on adapting to challenging times and the changing digital ecosystem as content creators.

Here are the dates to remember:

  • Episode 1 on June 25 (3 p.m. to 4 p.m.): Power of Community with Wil Dasovich
  • Episode 2 on July 10 (3 p.m. to 4 p.m.): Building a Strong Brand with Alodia Gosiengfiao
  • Episode 3 on July 24 (3 p.m. to 4 p.m.): The Relevance of Content Creators with Erwan Heussaff

If you wish to participate, you only need to tune into Smart Communications on YouTube. “Creator Camp LIVE is YouTube’s commitment to helping our creators thrive during these uncertain times. We first launched the program in December 2019 in Cebu with a goal of empowering creators outside Luzon through a series of face-to-face workshops,” says Marc Lefkowitz, Head of YouTube Creator and Artist Development, APAC. “When the pandemic started, not only did we make the program digital-first but we reshaped it to be more timely to include topics such as content resourcefulness and relevance, wellbeing, and building meaningful partnerships. We hope that through Creator Camp LIVE, together with Smart, we continue to empower the Filipino creator community with resources, opportunities, and content that matter to them.”
