Ferguson and Beyond: The Role of Independent Media

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cameras save lives. Especially when we are protesting oppression. We will explore the role of independent media in portraying our movements, goals and values. We will examine best practices for documenting to maximize our impact, such as collaborative media-making, consent, and self-care. We will screen videos and listen to journal entries from the front lines of Ferguson, and engage in a Q&A about indy media production and distribution. Participants will walk away with safety guidelines and access points for documenting protests.
