Watch Bayeté Ross Smith's keynote from July 14 and engage with Bayeté live via the chat and Q&A.
In his keynote, Bayeté Ross Smith creatively discusses effective multi-platform storytelling, especially under this pandemic, and how that intersects with environmental and racial equity. He will cite specific examples in his own work and other artists and creatives work and emphasize the importance of using the arts as a tool for social change. His work emphasizes the principal of not telling people what to think but creating scenarios where they will have to question their preexisting beliefs. After the presentation and Q&A, participants will be broken into small groups to discuss ideas related to supporting and implementing multi-platform storytelling.
