Media Policy Meets Cultural Policy: Bedtime Stories for the Digital Age

Navigating the Art of Change 2.0.
Grantmakers in the Arts Annual Conference
October 18, 2010

Rarely do the advocates meet, but there is much common ground. In the spirit of "better together" we will conduct a participatory session to elevate the intersections of the arts and social justice and media justice movements. The aim is to identify opportunities for the sharing of best practices and to foster collaborations that enable both art and social justice and media justice practitioners to more effectively use media, more artfully craft their messages and more efficiently reach their target audiences. Session presenters Helen De Michiel formerly of NAMAC and Michelle Coffey of the Lambent Foundation will consider such common issues as representation, access to audiences and mainstream vs. marginal.
