Join us for the 2016 Media Learning Seminar, the Knight Foundation-sponsored gathering that explores how community and place-based foundations can be leaders in using media, information and civic engagement to make their cities more successful. Foundations can bring one senior staff member and one board member. Registration for the event, taking place May 1 - 3, 2016 in Miami, is on a first-come, first-served basis until the seminar is full. With Knight support, there is no registration fee. The reduced hotel rate has expired but rooms may still be available at the conference hotel.

The seminar will open at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, May 1 with two options for in-depth training: 1) Social Media and Philanthropy, conducted by the team from Knight Digital Media Center, including Vikki Porter, Beth Kanter and Michele McLellan and 2) Human Centered Design From a Grantmaker’s Perspective, facilitated by Knight Foundation’s Chris Barr and Shazna Nessa.

On Sunday evening, May 1, Knight will host a viewing of the film Spotlight at the Olympia Theatre. Pre-registration is required for the training sessions as well as the film, Spotlight.
