Amplifying and Inspiring Impact: 2017 Impact Hours
Helping people navigate the current climate of information “clutter” is more important than ever. Our 2017 Impact Hours series will dig into ongoing environmental and social justice work, while sharing tools for more effective personal and organizational action. Each Impact Hour will include perspectives from an artist, activist, and academic on issues of communication, engagement, action, and impact. Together, we will challenge each other’s assumptions and share practical tactics for sparking social change. Join us in-person in NYC (space is limited) or online from around the world.
