Event Details

social media club seattleArmed with a start-up budget of $45 dollars, a camera, and social media, renowned filmmaker Mark Horvath has worked tirelessly to end homelessness one story at a time. Having lived among the homeless once himself, Mark created InvisiblePeople.tv and leveraged the power of video to share the poignant, unfiltered stories of the millions of individuals and families who reside in shelters, motels, tents along the streets and under highway bridges across the country.

Join us for this month’s Social Media Club Seattle (SMC Seattle) on May 28th at 415 Westlake where Mark, (@hardlynormal) will share how he uses storytelling to give homeless individuals and families a voice through InvisiblePeople.tv and social media channels. We’ll have an hour-long program and plenty of time for networking. Seats are limited and we expect it to sell out, so grab a ticket soon.

Mark Horvath 

In 2008, Mark Horvath, now known to many as @hardlynormal, set out to film the stories of America’s homeless and share them with as many people as possible on InvisiblePeople.tv and through other social media channels. Since then, he has become an internationally recognized activist and ambassador for the millions of individuals and families who reside in shelters, motels, tents along the streets and under highway bridges across the country.

Mark has been featured by the L.A. Times, CNN, CBS, Mashable.com and NPR. He’s spoken at a number of conferences and events including SXSW. The Huffington Post named him one of 11 Twitter activists you should follow. Youtube gave InvisiblePeople.tv unprecedented exposure allowing Horvath to curate YouTube’s homepage for a day. Mark was asked to speak at Twitter, Inc and at charity: water.
