“Story and narrative are the code for humanity’s operating system. Emerging media cannot risk limited inclusion and suffer the same pitfalls of traditional media. The stakes are too high.”
-Kamal Sinclair
  • These talks were recorded between September 3rd until December 10th for an engaging lecture and Q & A. 
  • Watch and Learn alongside a Media Entrepreneurship ProSeminar of 40 GSU students, CMII faculty and the public as we navigate the future of media and how we can work together to make a more inclusive digital world. 
  • Presentations will be recorded and made publicly available on this website after they take place. 

Based on the research and book, Making a New Reality by Kamal Sinclair and Jessica Clark, this series will discuss inclusive creative ecosystems/economies/media futures. Topics we hope to cover include creative labor, cultural artifacts, intellectual property, blockchain, access to technology, unions, precarious work, UBI, Afrofuturism, risk and entrepreneurship, and the circular economy.

Hosted by Elizabeth Strickler, eli@gsu.edu for more information.
