NewsWrights United is putting on an event on Monday, November 15 about the future of journalism, Journalism Awakening.
From their website:
Monday November 15, 2010 – 7:30-9:30pm
The Upstairs Gallery above Theatre Off Jackson
NewsWrights United is throwing a party. What kind of party is up to you.
Do you want to toast the rebirth of journalism, or drown your sorrows at its untimely demise?
We’ll start your evening with a complimentary glass of champagne or shot of rye (toasting or drowning?). Visual art and installations, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar await you in the gallery.
We’ll offer up a preview scene from our upcoming Living Newspaper, The New New News, and highlight the evening with a panel discussion on new media and journalism moderated by NewsWrights producer Tom Paulson and featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning P-I political cartoonist Dave Horsey, Monica Guzman of Intersect.com, Mark Higgins, Metro Editor at Seattle Times, Publicola’s Josh Feit, local sportswriting legend Art Thiel, The Stranger theatre critic Brendan Kiley, and Chris Grygiel, coordinator of political coverage for the P-I blogs.
Tickets just $20 at Brown Paper Tickets.
