Digital Democracy - The New Frontier of Politics and Social Media
Fresh Media ReMixology is a series bringing people together to sample and share ideas in discussions lead by some of Vancouver’s best and brightest media remixologists! Thanks to those who came out to our last event.
***Next event at The Waldorf on April 27th.
Media innovation plays an essential role in ensuring that the revolution unfolding in communication continues. More than ever before, there is opportunity to take an active role in shaping government and policy in this country. This months event will bring together media innovators, social change organizations and concerned citizens, to talk about social media and citizen engagement. The event will be an interactive dialogue on how we can use social media tools to engage citizens to vote in the upcoming elections, and more broadly in engaging the public in important local and global issues.
…Because inquiring minds need to discuss! Because connecting and collaborating matters. Because Vancouver needs a launch pad for media innovation, and we want you to be a part of it.
