571 people attended
The fifth annual BRIC Media Maker Weekend is a three-day virtual conference featuring free workshops, lectures, and panel discussions designed to educate makers on various aspects of media and content creation, from television, film, and podcasting.    

In the wake of a global pandemic, we have all had to pivot and find new ways to create and connect while remaining physically distant. This year's media maker weekend will focus on the transformation of media making that creatives and institutions have had to utilize in order to maintain professional opportunities, raise awareness for social advocacy and representation, as well as building community and promoting wellness.
