Adulting in the Digital Age
Institute of Contemporary Arts


Content creator and presenter Adesola Akerele (AKA Adessy) leads a workshop on navigating adulthood in the age of social media.

Discussions surrounding growing up with the internet will be split into a timeline of the past, the present and the future. The session will address how social media platforms can work to both our benefit and disruption, based heavily upon how we utilise new technologies and devices. Analysing key moments in young adulthood, the session will address how and why ‘adulting’ became such a difficult and taboo topic.

Adessy is the ICA’s content creator and presenter in residence.
Adesola Akerele is a content creator and presenter with an unwavering passion for storytelling. Adesola’s digital content explores untold narratives with young gen-z and millennial peer groups, engaging in discussions about collective struggles experienced when navigating adulthood in a social-media driven society. Adesola activates this space using her online web-series ‘Navigate’. With over 255,000+ views and 5,500+ subscribers on YouTube, the discussion is expanding from forbidden conversations into the digital norm.
