Vince Stehle, Executive Director, Media Impact Funders
Cultural organizations are increasingly relying upon film and digital media to strengthen their programming onsite and to reach a broader audience online and in their communities. Innovative figures at museums and other arts organizations are leading the way, with significant support from philanthropy. And more and more arts and culture organizations are using these tools and resources to spark civic engagement, beyond traditional educational and aesthetic functions of their organizations.
Among media forms and formats, radio is seeing a resurgence in reach and impact, driven in part by the explosion of interest in podcasts and other streaming media experiences.
Taken together, this year's Media Impact Forum will explore the intersection between the arts, culture and media, and will focus on the impact of creative expression through media. In particular, we'll take a close look at the connection between radio and community, and how this format continues to promote civic dialogue to the broadest audiences possible.
