Social Media, Social Justice

This audience-driven session will move at a torrid pace as we write, produce, and launch a short youtube film on a social justice topic of our collective choosing.

We'll demonstrate the economies of small scale that are taking over the social sector, and the power of media to change the hearts and minds of society on issues of fairness, justice, diversity, equality and inclusivity.

Our target will be to produce and publish a video that will eventually get at least 1000 views on Youtube.

Bring your positive attitude and a full reservoir of collaborative creative juices.
