Collaborations for Cause, presented in partnership with Ecotrust in Portland, OR, April 26-27th, 2013, will bring together photographers, NGOs, activists, and communications professionals to discuss the collaborative future of storytelling. Award-winning visual storytellers and communications strategists will share groundbreaking examples and examine the new media landscape, practical considerations for effective collaborations, and the ethical complexity of cause-driven storytelling.
On Friday, our second annual conference includes in-depth presentations and panel discussions with Andrew DeVigal and David Waingarten (Second Story), Glenn Ruga (SocialDocumentary.net), Amy Yenkin (Open Society Foundations), Dan Sadowsky (Mercy Corps), Amy Kober (American Rivers), Dan Shepherd (Photographer), Jason Houston (Blue Earth, Take One Creative), Andy Maser (Filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer), Finn Ryan (Wisconsin Media Lab), Eugénie Frerichs (Wieden + Kennedy), David Bellard (Rare), and Bev Gabe (LightHawk) as well as others, and insightful case studies by Blue Earth project photographers Gary Braasch, Robert Semeniuk, and Matt Black.
An evening keynote by photojournalist Ed Kashi on the intersections of social media, visual reporting, and media partnerships will round out the first day.
Saturday will be dedicated to small group, constructive conversations diving deeper into these and other topics using a participatory Open Space, or “unconference,” model.
Don’t wait to register - seating will be limited at Collaborations for Cause to ensure all conference attendees have ample opportunities for participation and networking.
