Sally Jo Fifer Mini-Keynote
Is the boom in media production a bust for democracy? Are unprecedented opportunities and lucrative deals for producers supporting a healthy ecology for our community? Independent voices must work harder than ever to break out, enter the zeitgeist, and inspire people to act in the public interest. Are things better or worse? Both are true and while our challenges shift and often seem intractable, they often bring progress. The future of the democracy hinges on harnessing our power as storytellers to strengthen not just our communities, our country, and our world, but also ourselves.
