Craft Content Nashville is a broad community of digital media and content creators and enthusiasts. If you’re interested in blogging, social media, social networking, podcasting, online video, virtual and augmented reality, SEO, UI and UX … Craft Content Nashville is for you!
Now in its 12th year, our annual spring event has established itself as the premier digital media “unconference” in the Mid-South.
Our 2019 event is open to everyone interested in using online media to share ideas, hearing from industry leaders and fellow community members, and participating in discussions and demonstrations. We explore strategies and techniques used to share stories and engaging content through words, pictures, audio, video and beyond.
Attendees are welcome to get involved through volunteering, presenting an insightful session, or inspiring and leading community learning through active discussion and networking.
Craft Content Nashville 2019 is a nonprofit event facilitated by TechFed Nashville, a Tennessee nonprofit organization whose mission is to support and grow the grassroots tech talent in Middle Tennessee through educational events and groups.
The Story of Craft Content
During the promotional period for PodCamp Nashville 2014, Chris Brogan (the co-founder of the first PodCamp held in Boston in 2006) challenged the Nashville team to push PodCamp to the next generation of “unconference.” The name, while important to the history of the event, no longer accurately reflected the diversity of content offered through sessions.
After PCN14 had concluded, a design team including Carla Swank Fox, Chuck Bryant, Dave Delaney, Keith Cawley, Christy Hunniford, and Joe Smith went to work reimagining what a content-focused “unconference” should look like. Out of those nearly year-long meetings and planning sessions, Craft Content Nashville was born.
Building off its PodCamp roots, Craft Content Nashville now offers a fresh voice to engage an ever-evolving spectrum of digital content creators. In addition to the bloggers, educators, marketers and podcasters it previously attracted, Craft Content Nashville aims to inspire increased participation from video producers, graphic designers, photographers, developers, and all others who craft unique and innovative content that plays to our eyes, ears, and minds through the creative use of words, pictures and sound.
