Photoville Discussion on Raising Awareness with Multimedia

August 25, 2014

Headed to Photoville this September? Blue Chalk founder and CEO Greg Moyer will be on Photoville's Land Grabbing: Raising Awareness with Multimedia panel on Sept. 21. 

The panel includes photojournalist Alfredo Bini, Human Rights Watch program director Iain Levine, University of Virginia professor Paolo D'Odorico, and Why Hunger's director of the Global Movements Program Saulo Araujo.

Using land grabbing as a case study, the panel will discuss the potential for issue-based multimedia storytelling and explore the question: how can photography and multimedia be used as tools for raising awareness?

The panel will take place in the Photoville Talk Area – located at the storefront of One Brooklyn Bridge Park at the corner of Joralemon Street and Furman Street.

Housed inside (and out) of repurposed shipping containers, Photoville will present more than 50 photo exhibitions & outdoor installations addressing a wide range of issues. 

Blue Chalk is proud to sponsor this panel alongside the Virginia University Department of Environmental Sciences, with the participation of Human Rights Watch, Grassroots International and Why Hunger.
