Last year, more than 1,000 stories, photos, videos or tweets were collected and curated during #UWRightNow. Framed as a "multimedia project designed to capture the breadth, depth and spirit of the University of Wisconsin-Madison during a 24-hour period," the 2012 version of #UWRightNow was a crowdsourced social media masterpiece. Combining "staff-produced and user-generated content," the day-long project provided a snapshot of what it meant to be a member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison community.
This year's #UWRightNow event (April 17th) is focused on the individual experience at UW as well as the people who influenced someone's time at the university. The theme for this year's social-media-driven event is "Face to Face" and will feature "people, interactions, connections and (of course) faces that make UW-Madison such an incredible place." Participants can share their stories via Twitter, Instagram, Vine, YouTube, and a web-based contact form.
Kudos to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for creating a day-long event that showcases the power of community-driven storytelling/sharing.
