Discussion: The Rise and Relevance of Participatory Journalism

Join Newspace Center for Photography for a discussion on the increasing relevance and need for participatory journalism, of which we are all potential producers and consumers. Speakers include Andrew DeVigal (University of Oregon), Katmeow García (Open Signal/KBOO), Sara Quinn (Balance Media), and Cameron Whitten (Know Your City).

 This program is taking place in conjunction with the exhibition In Response: Revisiting the DOCUMERICA Photography Project. This group exhibition presents the work of nine artists whose image-based work documents the correlation between environmental problems and issues of race, gender, place, age, class, occupation, health care, lifestyle and others. The projects were selected from submissions responding to an open call Newspace announced in early 2017 for work inspired by the Documerica Photography Project—a program initiated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1971 to document the human connection to environmental issues. This exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, July 16, 2017.
