Upcoming Event: Media That Matters 2012

The Media That Matters conference is a two-day festival that brings together professionals, artists and students interested in making an impact through media. As a joint project of the Center for Social Media and Arts Engine, Inc., the conference provides a platform to showcase a year's accomplishments in using media for social good, and it also encourages conversation and experience sharing to make things even better. It is an enormous opportunity to present ideas, connect with fellows and exchange thoughts. To get a quick glance at last year's programming, check out the rapporteurs report.

This year's theme is "Change For Good." The conference will feature several talks and panels on how independent social change filmmakers can execute integrated campaigns that are strategic, action-oriented, and have enduring impact. Inspiring guests include Meredith Blake, founder and CEO of Cause & AffectMichael Collins, director of Give Up Tomorrowand many others.
