Media Impact Forum - Innovation for the Next Four Years 

Friday, January 25, 2013
Stanford, CA

Join funders, technologists, media makers and social innovators for a daylong meeting to explore the next stage of media and technology funding. This event is presented by Media Impact Funders and sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Registration is now open (funders only, please).

Innovation is at the heart of social change, and rapid changes in media and technology are driving monumental shifts in how we learn about the world, share our experiences, take action and filter information.

Connect with colleagues from ZeroDivide, The California Endowment and the Knight, Mozilla, Tides and Wyncote Foundations and many other funders, as we learn from change-makers and funders who are accelerating these shifts in a range of areas - from design-thinking and public media experimentation to social media and advocacy communications.

  • The Long View - Investing for Sustainable Social Returns
  • What's Next - Discovering Innovation and Nurturing Social Entrepreneurs
  • Turning the Page in Journalism - Solutions Journalism Network
