Philomathia Day: Immersive Environmental Storytelling

As part of winning the 2023 Philomathia Prize, Jennifer Redfearn, Director of Berkeley Journalism’s Documentary Program, has curated Philomathia Day: Immersive Environmental Storytelling on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm, at the David Brower Center in Berkeley. 

This day-long event is an exploration at the nexus of visual journalism, environmental science, art, and emerging technologies that will engage audiences in stories of our natural world. Join us for lightning talks, interactive demonstrations, screenings, and performances with leading visual storytellers, scientists, artists, and technologists who bring their disciplines together for a powerful day of action-oriented, truth-telling about climate change and conservation.

The event is free and open to the public.
