Last October 19-21, through the initative of YouTube, the second YouTube Pop-up Space Manila was held at Green Sun Hotel, Makati. Active Philippine YouTube creators had the opportunity to learn about video production, collaborate with other creators, and give them the production tools they need. This enables them to realize if not be closer to their creative goals.
The YouTube Pop-up Space Manila is our latest effort to invest in the development of the Filipino creator community, which has grown considerably over the past year. By giving them access to all these trainings and opportunities, we hope to see more empowered creators growing their audiences, building their careers, and contributing more to the Philippines’ digital ecosystem.
Moe Inaki, YouTube Space Asia Pacific Senior Strategist
All the events, workshops, and networking opportunities organized were aligned to the mission of YouTube: learn, connect, and create.
Learn. Winners of the first YouTube NextUp in the Philippines, which was launched in Manila last July, participated in creator camps. They have extensive workshops on production techniques. Meanwhile, workshops were held for other YouTubers such as a Mobile Live Workshop and a YouTube Production Workshop by YouTube ambassadors.
Connect. YouTubers, with at least 1000 subscribers, have the opportunity to network with other YouTubers at the YouTube Pop-up party. The party allows them to meet their favorite YouTubers and discuss on possible collaborations with fellow YouTubers. A lounge area and multiple meeting rooms can be used too for meetings.
Create. Sets such as a Halloween set and chroma set, and equipment can be used for free by local YouTube creators.
