Future of Media and Policy: The Role of the Individual in Crafting New Media Narratives

October 12, 2017 | 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Increasingly, our relationship with media is fraught with mistrust and confusion. Today, virtually anyone can author content with potential for global dissemination, yet many of us feel less represented in the public narrative and less able to impact policy decisions.  

Brazilian journalist Bruno Torturra will be joined by Chicago journalists Darryl Holliday of City Bureau and Jennifer Brandel of Hearken to discuss the role of individuals and emerging technology tools in crafting new media narratives that have the potential to shape more inclusive and equitable policy.

The panel will be moderated by Angel Ysaguirre of the Illinois Humanities Council.

Hosted by MacArthur and Columbia College's School of Media Arts in partnership with ThoughtWorksOpenbox and New America Chicago.
