Artists for Truth invites you to join us for two panel discussions that will bring together voices from journalism, libraries, psychology, statistics, community health, activism, law, education, and advocacy to explore the ability to access and communicate truthful information.
Both panel discussions will be moderated by Jared Ball. Dr. Ball is a Professor of Media and Africana Studies at Morgan State University. He is also an author, radio host and mixtape radio producer for imixwhatilike.org.
Panel 1: The Rise of Fake News (1:00 - 2:00 p.m.)
This discussion will explore a changing media landscape that includes misinformation, biased news, propaganda, and public distrust. How does information illiteracy manifest as a result of and tool for class warfare? The rise of “fake news” has a complex history; how did we get here?
Panel 2: Ramifications of a “Post-Truth Society” (2:30 - 3:30 p.m.)
How does living in a “post-truth society” affect organizations and our communities? This panel will explore challenges for advocacy, social justice, health, and equality.
Artists for Truth is made possible by the generous support of The Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, individual donors, and our art community. Special thanks to Strong City Baltimore for serving as fiscal sponsor for Artists for Truth, and to SpaceCamp Gallery for hosting us this summer.
