MANILA -- Three influential vloggers from the Philippines are set to hold online workshops for content creators starting this month.
Erwan Heussaff, Alodia Gosiengfiao, and Wil Dasovich are part of Creator Camp LIVE, a result of a team-up between YouTube and Smart Communications Inc.
Dasovich will be the first to hold an online workshop, with the theme "Power of Community," on June 25.
This will be followed by an episode featuring Gosiengfiao, titled "Building a Strong Brand," on July 10.
Ending the series is Heussaff, which will talk about "The Relevance of Content Creators" on July 24.
All three sessions will be streamed from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the YouTube page of Smart Communications.
"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. When the pandemic started, not only we made the program digital-first but we reshaped it to be more timely to include topics such as content resourcefulness and relevance, well-being, and building meaningful partnerships," said Marc Lefkowitz, head of YouTube Creator and Artist Development for APAC.
"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," he added.
Jane Basas, SVP and head of consumer wireless business at Smart, for her part said: "Creator Camp LIVE is a valuable learning platform for aspiring vloggers and content creators especially during these challenging times. This program is very much aligned with our commitment to bring meaningful connections made simple to Filipinos so they can pursue their passions."
