The Social Justice + Media Symposium is an annual gathering of students, faculty, and stakeholders to explore how media practices and pedagogies can support equity, justice, and positive social change in daily life.

Role: Lead the creative direction of the Symposium, including all brand assets, digital and print marketing, merchandise design. Co-create a participatory design activity to build community among attendees.

The Social Justice + Media Symposium was conceived to honor the life and work of Moses Shumow, a beloved mediamaker, activist, and my participatory design professor. Moses worked tirelessly in the classroom and community to help people use media to advocate for their rights. We designed the symposium to gather students, faculty, practitioners, and those committed to more equitable futures to continue the dialog that was so important to Moses’s work, and to communities around the world.
