Arts Engine & Cinemagical Media present Mindful Media Engagement in San Francisco
In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities of engaging in active media citizenry in this digital age. Often, we plug in and tune out, eventually we find ourselves overwhelmed by social network streams and soundbytes. Join us for this media screening and workshop where we explore mindfulness and media engagement practices, resources, and tools that allow us to communicate in new and compassionate literacies.
