Media Rise is excited to launch “Early Rise 2014,” a worldwide series of morning mixers for people committed to inspiring media for social good. Their first event will be held at the Hamilitonian Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Start your morning off with an inspiring talk, meditation and networking over healthy breakfast & coffee. Mix & mingle with storytellers, designers, activists, business leaders & educators who share your passion & energy for meaningful media. Get inspired by changemakers who use media effectively to accelerate social transformation at the individual & community level. Yogurt, granola and fresh fruit generously provided by KIND. Plus, hot coffee by Cafe Los Suenos, specialty coffee roasters in DC, committed to creating shared value for coffee-growing communities.
The featured speaker for this event will be Seema Reza, a poet and essayist based outside of Washington, DC, where she coordinates and facilitates a unique multi-hospital arts program that encourages the use of the arts as a tool for narration, self-care and socialization among a population struggling with emotional and physical injuries. She serves on the council for the Transformative Language Arts Network, and also offers select on-line and group writing workshops.
