Discussion: The Rise & Relevance of Citizen Journalism
July 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for a roundtable discussion on the increasing relevance and need for citizen journalists. Speakers include Prof. Andrew DeVigal (University of Oregon), Sara Quinn (Balance Media), Cameron Whitten (Know Your City), and more.
This program is taking place in conjunction with the exhibition In Response: Revisiting the DOCUMERICA Photography Project. This group exhibition presents the work of nine artists whose image-based work documents the correlation between environmental problems and issues of race, gender, place, age, class, occupation, health care, lifestyle and others. The projects were selected from submissions responding to an open call Newspace announced in early 2017 for work inspired by the Documerica Photography Project—a program initiated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1971 to document the human connection to environmental issues. This exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, July 16, 2017.
