MCDM and the Seattle Arts and Lecture series teamed up for five vibrant conversations about digital media and our world’s communication ecosystem.
Hanson Hosein, Director of the Comm Lead program, opened the series with his keynote presentation, “Storyteller Uprising: Trust and Persuasion in the Digital Age.”
This was his focus: “With the decline of traditional journalism, there’s an increased need for trusted information. This presents a huge opportunity to individuals, communities, companies and organizations. They can fill that void by telling their own multimedia stories, building their own channels, thereby serving as trusted sources in their own right. That’s the “uprising” — people seizing control of communication by building ongoing credible connection through story and digital technology. We’ll discuss why this has happened, and what this means for communication strategies.”
