The Emergent Chorus: Collaborative Creativity, Simple Tech, and Giving Voice to the Voiceless

Journalists Michele Norris, Jose Antonio Vargas, and Amar Bakshi have all worked to create global megaphones for sharing experiences and stories that too often go unnoticed. Norris’s Race Card Project, Vargas’s #EmergingUS, and Bakshi’s Portals provide egalitarian podiums where the most difficult conversations around race, immigration, religion, and identity can happen. Norris, Vargas, and Bakshi will explain the theories and practices behind the creation and curation of their projects, and how they enlarge our awareness and understanding of each other’s humanity.
