*Despite moving to a larger space, we've sold out of tickets for the dialogue. You can still register for collaboratory and social part of this event and get to mingle with some of Vancouver's leading media innovators. Just register above and show up any time after 8:15pm.
*NEW: Nick Middleton of the Funk Hunters will DJ the social part of the evening - check them out: http://thefunkhunters.com/
Nick is the perfect DJ for us because in addition to being a successful DJ, he's also a documentary producer with Reel Rising Productions, and is the co-director of the The Gulf Islands Film and Television School (GIFTS). He's fresh off of a DJ festival tour and a documentary project with Corporation producer Jennifer Abbott, so we're lucky to have him out. Definitely a fitting DJ for this Fresh event!

Re-Mixology is a new series presented by Fresh Media, where we come together to sample and share ideas in discussions lead by some of Vancouver's best and brightest media remixologists. For this first event, we're excited to feature Kris Krug, with the topic: Toward Cooperative Media Making: How can professional and citizen journalists collaborate?
An acclaimed photographer and social technology expert, Kris Krug will share photos and thoughts from his recent trip to capture the BP disaster through TEDxOilSpill. Following this, we'll open up to a broader dialogue that considers, "How can citizens, professional media makers, and everyone in-between collaborate to produce media for social change?" Finally, there will be an opportunity for participants to do a "collaborator's callout" where they do a 30 second introduction to a current or future project relevant to the group. The gathering will close with a social/networking session including a cash bar and music.
Inspired by the growing energy around the ways in which technology,
art, media, and participatory frameworks are spurring innovation in the
not-for-profit, journalism, and social change communities, Re-Mixology
is a great opportunity for citizens and media-makers to come together
and connect over timely discussions and presentations that showcase
fresh and imaginative examples of media innovation.
Join media innovators, technologists, artists, citizens and the online community at Fresh Media - a celebration of innovation and independent media, and a re-imagining of media and journalism.
