Rural Arts Weekly and IA: At the Crossroads of Digital Play & Critical Engagement in Milwaukee 2016
By Imagining America | October 03, 2016
From democratized reportage to grassroots organizing campaigns, social media’s role in knowledge-sharing, coalition-building, and cross-sector creative leadership has never been more vibrant. Digital connectivity affords citizens and educators dazzling new opportunities to network, brainstorm, fundraise, and collaborate. Or, to put it another way: As we think, we hyperlink.
The 2016 Imagining America Conference organizers invite you to join Twitter-based discussion forum Rural Arts Weekly for front-lines coverage in Milwaukee, using digital platforms to explode binaries of digital and analog, creative and analytical, rural and urban, and academic and community-based organizing.
Here are a few ways to engage with IA, RAW, community partners, and your fellow attendees in Milwaukee:
- Use hashtag #IA2016MKE on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram
- Tag @ImaginingAmer partner organizations @UWM, @MIAD_edu, @MarquetteU, @ACrucibleMoment, @usartsdept, @NERCHE, @Campus_Compact, & @aacu to connect to IA’s broad network of academic and community resources
- Download IA 2016’s Guidebook App for on- and offline conference mapping, event calendars and more
- Meet up with RAW moderator Amy Brooks in plenary sessions, event sites, at meals or on the web to share your questions and reflections throughout the week!
