Dr. Srivi Ramasubramanian is excited to bring Catalyst 2014: Media & Art for Social Change to Texas A&M this week. The afternoon-long event will connect artists, activists, community leaders, and educators who are committed to using media and art for social good. The symposium consists of interactive workshops combined with a panel of distinguished guest speakers from both the academic communities and media industries as well as a planned networking session. Dr. Ramasubramanian believes that this event will provide an ideal atmosphere for the development of new ideas as the event will create a space for the interaction of diverse peoples.
The two workshops feature guest speakers from various media backgrounds. The first workshop on leadership, social innovation, and creativity will be about nurturing a creative and innovative environment at the workplace. The second workshop will be on social media for social change and is about using media and art for positive social change.
Catalyst 2014 will take place between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm followed by a social hour on Friday November 7th in the Wayne Stark Galleries of the Memorial Student Center. Lunch will be served to registered guests in attendance, to register please visit Catalyst Registration and for more information about the event visit TAMU Catalyst 2014.
