Creator Culture and Public Diplomacy

On January 10, 2024, CPD hosted David Craig for an online conversation on creator culture and public diplomacy.

The discussion focused on the emergence of a new wave of native social media entrepreneurs as cultural producers—YouTube vloggers, Twitch gameplayers, Instagram influencers, TikTokers, and others—and how the disruption shapes storytelling formats and impact for public diplomacy.
