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

Our 21st century media environment has grown more immersive and predominant with the invention of communication technologies such as telephones, satellites, video cameras, and computers. We are all now electronically connected, able to communicate, observe, and react to what is happening anywhere in the world in an instant. How do we make sense of and trust these myriad electronic messages and their messengers, or even know or understand who or what is behind the code that creates and designs our mediated reality? More importantly, how can we have agency to disrupt and change the mainstream media’s dominant control over most of these messages? This panel will share our knowledge of disruptive media activism by examining its historical origins, current code-controlled aesthetics, and strategies to promote community-based digital storytelling.
