Media Impact Forum: Innovation for the Next Four Years
Friday, January 25, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM (PST)
Join funders, technologists, media makers and social innovators for a daylong meeting to explore the next stage of media and technology funding. Following the discussions join us for a reception and tour at the d.school.
This event (for funders) is presented by Media Impact Funders and sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Innovation is at the heart of social change, and rapid changes in media and technology are driving monumental shifts in how we learn about the world, share our experiences, take action and filter information.
Connect with colleagues from ZeroDivide, The California Endowment and the Knight, Mozilla, Tides and Wyncote Foundations and many other funders as we learn from change-makers and funders who are accelerating these shifts in a range of areas - from design-thinking and public media experimentation to social media and advocacy communications.
