Join some of Vancouver’s brightest and most innovative young thinkers on Wednesday, August 18th, at the first ever Re-Mixology event presented by Fresh Media.
In an age where blogs and Twitter are just as valid and popular news sources as big media and publishing companies, Re-Mixology is a presentation, discussion, networking, and brainstorming event where Vancouverites will be tackling the question: how can professional and citizen journalists collaborate in the not-for-profit, journalism, and social change communities? The argument of whether bloggers could – or should – replace journalists in today’s wired world is a hot topic, so rather than fuel the fire, Fresh Media wants you to take part in the discussion of how the old and the new can work together to make new media for social change.
To help inspire you, acclaimed photographer and social technology expert Kris Krug will be featured as a speaker, where he’ll be sharing photos and his experiences as part of National Geographic and TEDxOilSpill. His presentation will be followed by discussions and a social/networking session.
Re-Mixology will be held from 6:30pm-11:00pm this Wednesday, August 18th, at W2 Storyeum Salon, 151 West Cordova St. in Vancouver. There are only 50 tickets being sold for this event, with available tickets now selling for $10 each. A portion of the registration proceeds will be donated to the BP oil spill cleanup effort.
