ReMixiology is where media innovators and social change makers mix up a concoction of social-change media awesomeness
There will be music and a cash bar (Cash Only)
Media is a tool that delivers information, generates ideas and inspires dialogue. Public space is a social space that is meant to be open and accessible to all. What happens when media in public space is remixed? How do we use new and old media tools to affect public space and generate conversations? This Remixology explores how we can re-imagine public space using media in order to promote critical thinking and civic engagement.
