Program

In the digital age, how do we determine what is "good" media? How should we, as social change agents, "consume" the barrage of visual media increasingly available to us — documentary films, YouTube videos, digital stories, photo essays, etc. What's the difference between visuals used for research and evaluation, and films that are intended for social activism or fundraising? inVision 2010 will gather leaders in philanthropy, nonprofit practitioners, and media producers together in one place to learn from each other's emerging work, and co-create a framework for tapping the power of visual media to advance our common agendas.
