Incubation Workshops

On June 15, 2018, AFRO PWW will hold our fourth and final incubation workshop at the DC Public Library Express in Washington, DC. This will be an all-day event with breakfast, lunch, and refreshments provided. Attendees will benefit from overviews of digital design and publishing theory, examples of projects, and will engage in hands-on training in several platforms. No prior experience in digital publishing is necessary and we welcome participants of any skill level. Professionals interested in starting up digital publishing projects or programs at their institutions are specially invited to participate and consult with our staff. Special thanks goes to the DC Public Library system for hosting.

Through 2018, AFRO-PWW has hosted a series of incubation workshops where scholars, researchers, library and museum professionals, who study the Black experience learn about digital publishing from the ground up. Previous workshops have been held in Jackson, Mississippi and Raleigh, North Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia.
