Remixology Salon #1 with Kris Krug
We are proud to present REMIXOLOGY, a new monthly series starting this Aug 18th at the W2 Media + Arts Centre on 161 W. Cordova. This series will feature thirst-quenching media innovation and new ideas, spurred by the growing energy around how we engage with modern technology, art and media. Join Vancouver’s brightest media remixologists to connect, share and be inspired!
THIS MONTH’S TOPIC //
Toward Cooperative Media Making: Featuring acclaimed photographer Kris Krug (TEDxOilSpill and National Geographic). How can professional and citizen journalists collaborate?
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.
FULL AGENDA //
Social technology expert Kris Krug will share photos and thoughts from his recent trip to capture the BP disaster through TEDxOilSpill.
Following this, we’ll open up to a broader dialogue that explores a big question: How can citizens, professional media makers, and everyone in-between collaborate to produce media for social change?
Finally, there will be an opportunity for participants to do a “collaborator’s callout” where you are invited to do a 30 second introduction to a project you’re working on that’s relevant to the group. The gathering will close with a social/networking session including a cash bar, light refreshments and music.
$5 suggested donation. No one turned away for lack of funds. A portion of registration proceeds will be donated to the BP cleanup effort. Registration limited to 50 people, so be sure to PRE-REGISTER at http://remixology.eventbrite.com/
