Community Conversation on Digital Inclusion

Thursday, January 16 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

George S. Turnbull Center, Shirley Pape Forum
70 NW Couch Street, Floor 3R, Portland, OR 97209

This event is by invitation only. Please email andrew.devigal@gmail.com if you'd like to be added to the invitation list.

Is your organization actively improving the lives of community members by supporting their access to computers, the Internet, and digital literacy training? Do you experience yourself, or witness through your work the challenges of not having equitable digital access to information?

If so, we invite you to attend a community conversation on Thursday, January 16 at 6 pm, to share your experience and knowledge. A team of multimedia journalists from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication will participate and, with your guidance, will identify stories that will be produced as short video documentaries with the goal of screening them during the Net Inclusion national conference in April.

Light food and refreshments will be served.

MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT

In collaboration with the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) and Multnomah County Library, UO’s School of Journalism’s (SOJC) Masters in Multimedia Journalism (MMJ) program will produce short journalistic videos capturing the lived experience of Portlanders and their stories of access to computers, internet access, and digital literacy training. These videos will be reported, edited, and produced throughout UO’s winter term (Jan-Mar) and screened during the Net Inclusion national conference, Apr. 7-9, 2020. The videos will also be accessible by partner organizations to highlight their meaningful work through the stories of community members and how their lives have improved because of their support and resources.

For any questions regarding this January 16 event, please don’t hesitate to reach out to University of Oregon Professor Andrew DeVigal at andrew.devigal@gmail.com.
