Our Story

Launched as annual events in 2013, Tweeps and Shoof Forums have explored possibilities for using new media for social impact and inspired thousands of young people to unleash their creative potential. Some of the topics explored in the past include new opportunities in visual digital media, the impact of social media on government services, sports fanaticism, and the rise of new creativity in social media channels. Both events have empowered Saudi youth to build their professional and intellectual networks while learning about today’s most pressing social issues.

Today

The Misk Media Forum is Saudi Arabia’s premier event connecting rising media pioneers with visionary leaders and content creators. Its main goal is to build the skills of Saudi youth by encouraging the exchange of ideas through innovative and collaborative formats.

Main Theme

Today, social media is the most prominent channel to exchange cultures and thoughts, promoting online creativity across diverse economic sectors, ranging from healthcare to education.

 

Not only did new social media platforms change the way we connect and interact with others but also it transformed how we plan and build cities, learn, start businesses, and even the way we communicate with governments. Social media networks also escalate local issues globally and vice versa, altering communication methods and social organizations.
