Each year, Boston Civic Media convenes its growing network of faculty, students, activists, journalists, policymakers and nonprofits all invested in "civic media,” or media that creates social change through art, design, and technology. The 2017 theme focused on the Civic Imagination with an incredible lineup of presenters to share new strategies, insights and approaches for collectively re-imagining public life in Boston.
Topics at the conference included media literacy, youth-led advocacy, DIY activist technologies, and creative storytelling. The first ever inter-campus curriculum addressing climate change was also announced.
