First Speaker April 1st, 2009 (It’s no joke)

Momenta Workshop directors Jamie Rose (also of jamie’s list and WPOW fame) and Chris Anderson have traveled all over the world teaching students. Now, they are coming to our studio to talk about using visual media as a vector for change, and the democratization of media on the whole; allowing the individual a voice that can resonate just as powerfully and effectively as larger media providers. They will also discuss “market building” in terms of non-profit media and NGO work. This means helping develop a marketplace for nonprofits and NGO’s to see value in a variety of visual media products, and training a market full of providers to provide services targeted at this growing sector. Also, they will talk about training local journalists and non-profit employees to take on some of the on the ground creation, and thus creating customers who can accomplish some level of delivery by themselves, but usually lack the sophistication of western visual journalists…and thus further reinforce our market superiority.

Their charity is the Center for International Health. Prints will be available for silent auction. 

Here are some images to get you excited to hear them speak:

    Hey everyone! All of us at Momenta are really looking forward to this event. We have students from around the country coming to talk to you all about their experiences and some folks from our charity are trying to make it as well. We think it will be a great evening filled with wonderful photographs and great discussion of working with nonprofits around the world.

    See you at 7 on the 1st!
    Jamie, John and the Momenta staff
