The Benevolent Media Festival is a celebration of Washington, D.C.’s community of storytellers and designers dedicated to social and environmental good. Members of the community who identify as “benevolent media creators” are invited to host and organize their own lectures, workshops, performances, networking events or other activities, located at multiple venues across the city, that compel audiences to care about a cause, take action on an issue, or promote a point of view through strategic and inspiring multimedia. The events are scheduled for November 4-7, 2011.

Join us for what promises to be an inspiring event for up-and-coming photographers looking to bring social and environmental issues to light. We will have slideshow presentations from two photographers who use their talent to discuss social issues: Nancy Farese fromPhotoPhilanthropy.org and Emma Scott from Critical Exposure.
Following the slideshows, we will have a panel discussion, where the audience will have the chance to engage the photographers and learn how to get involved in benevolent photography.
