Creators Offline LIT is an event taking well-known YouTubers, bloggers and Snapchatters and putting them face to face with their audience. The event is taking place in LIT Millennium Theatre on Friday, February 10th, in aid of Limerick Suicide Watch.
At this event, viewers will be able to engage with their favourite content creators and ask them questions without the use of a computer.
The creators will be discussing how social media can be used to help create a business and build a brand, alongside other topics with regards to different forms of social media.
This event is the ideal opportunity for people to be able to question these social media stars with subjects they’ve always wanted to know more about, as well as to finally meet them.
The content creators that will be attending the event are Niamh Love Life, who has an Irish fashion, lifestyle and travel blog, James Kavanagh, who makes popular Snapchat stories, and The Make-Up Fairy, a blogger who covers a wide variety of subjects, from health and beauty to style and fashion. They will all be talking about how they have used social media to create their own brands.

Adam created his blog in July of 2016 and as of November 2016 his blog reached over 10,000 followers. Adam also recently joined the YouTube scene as well as all other social medias. Adam has studied PR, Digital Marketing, SEO, Creative Writing, Social Media Management, Graphic Design & Photography to build his blog as a business. Since developing his blog, Adam has become an official SeeChange.ie Ambassador. He has even been named one of The Irish Blogger Associations Featured Bloggers & Nominated for their 2017 Awards.
The Creators Offline LIT event is in aid of Limerick Suicide Watch, a group that patrols the river on certain nights of the week in order top identify and support those who are showing signs of distress and may be contemplating suicide.
They are a volunteer group that rely on the support, fundraisers and donations from the public to fund things such as uniforms and jackets.
Limerick Suicide Watch is hoping to patrol seven nights a week in the near future once they bring onboard a number of new volunteers.
