A message from Dan Lamont
I am hoping you can help get the word out about a visual journalism retreat called Collaborations for Cause to be held in Langley on Whidbey Island May 4 and 5. It is a benefit for the Blue Earth Alliance, which supports documentary photography about social and environmental issues. This will be a great opportunity to explore new ways to do great photojournalism in the age of “new media”.
Collaborations for Cause is a unique two day event bringing together media producers, journalists, photographers, non-profit executives, funding organizations, corporate communications and PR professionals, educators, students and engaged citizens to share skills, strategies and techniques critical to successful cause-driven communication in today’s rapidly evolving new media environment.
The event, being held May 4th and 5th in lovely Langley Washington, on Whidbey Island, has been created by the non-profit Blue Earth Alliance which supports documentary story telling about social and environmental issues. It is produced by the Langley Center for New Media. The University of Washington Master of Communication in Digital Media program is the retreat’s academic partner.
Students get the special “early bird” rate regardless of registration date.
