Advancing Civic Media Research, Teaching and Practice in Boston

Our second annual conference in 2016 focused on Design, Technology, and Social Impact was a great success! Our keynote spaeker, Boston City Councillor Ayanna Pressley, addressed the audience of scholars, practitioners, and city leaders with a charge to keep equity and inclusion at the forefront of civic media and design. With an almost tripled attendance from the year prior, participants chose from panels and workshops on the topics of Media Literacy, Systems and Advocacy, Inclusion and Engagement, and Civic Art.
