Lunch: Basta! Mapping and Storytelling The World’s Fastest Growing Occupation – 10/27

ø

Artist/writer Marisa Jahn and journalist Julian Rubinstein will present a “Basta!: Mapping the World’s Fastest Growing Occupation,” a project launched by People’s Production House and Newsmotion.org in partnership with Sourcemap that covers the global Occupy Wall Street movement. Described by the Nieman Lab as a “project of a collective of award-winning journalists and journalism thinkers,” Newsmotion.org is a global news and documentary storytelling initiative that broadcasts independent voices, produces original content, and promotes digital media literacy. Newsmotion is launched in partnership with People’s Production House, a non-profit media arts and journalism institute that teaches students, immigrants, and working families how to produce news critical to a vibrant democracy. Jahn will also present “New Day New Standard,” a project by PPH with support from MIT’s Center for Future Civic Media that utilizes VoIP Drupal to help get the word out about the landmark Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, a law passed in November 2011. When someone calls the hotline number, they hear what sounds like a radio talk show whose ‘host’ is Christine Lewis, a real nanny in New York whose charisma as a social justice organizer landed her a guest spot on The Colbert Report in January 2011.
