Participate in Social Media Project focused on the Presidential Election  

Leading up to November 8th, the Techne Institute will be preparing a participatory election-day performance event centered on the individual stories that are told across political divides through text, pictures, video, and sound in social media feeds. Writer and director Eli Commins will lead the project, which will coincide with a performance by the legendary (or infamous) Yes Men.

Through the collaboration of DiSC (the Committee on Digital Scholarship), Interested undergraduate and graduate students are invited to take part in this unique and exciting project, culminating in a live event on campus the day of the election. There are multiple ways in which to participate in the project while learning new digital and multimedia skills. No previous experience required.
