When an emotionally charged image goes viral in the news, does your ability to think analytically go out the door?
Join YPFP on Monday, April 4th from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. for an enlightening workshop with Ian Bateson, an independent correspondent based in Kiev and an alum of a Cultural Vistas’ program, who will take us through examples of propaganda, showing us how we are manipulated by emotional content, focusing mainly on the recent conflict in Ukraine, and teach us how to hone our media literacy -- an essential skill in the digital age. Light snacks and drinks will be offered.
Members RSVP by logging into their accounts. Non-members and "friends of Cultural Vistas” can RSVP here. Non-members must pay $5 to attend via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
