OccupyBostonMedia - A Workshop with its Media Activists
As Occupy Boston has taken hold at Dewey Square over the last three weeks, an ad hoc group of digital and new media producers, public relations professionals, off-duty journalists, students, and volunteers planned and staffed an around-the-clock media facility. We will discuss the Media Working-Group timeline to date, challenges of working as a volunteer ad hoc group, experiential learning practices, and surprising wins in local media coverage. We will also cover ongoing Media Working-Group challenges, including documentation and representation of the large, evolving Occupy Boston movement.
Presenters: Nadeem Mazen, Alex Pearlman, Gunner Scott, Jason Potteiger
Location: Wolfard 204
Workshop Session: Afternoon Session (3:00 - 4:30 p.m.)
