Room:

Activity: 
Culture, Creators and Media Makers

We’ve got hundreds of cable channels and a bazillion-dollar film industry — but this programming tends to feature a lot of the same old stories. When it’s a story about families, we see heterosexual parents and their children. When it’s a story about reproductive health, we see men talking about the need to limit women’s access to services. We need to interrupt the dominant narrative with stories that reflect what’s really going on in our communities. This workshop will provide an overview of three models designed to do just that. Participants will learn how media can be used to shift culture, support campaigns, foster collaboration and build the social justice  movement.
