August 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDTFree
Entertainment & The Media
August 1, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
The role and impact of our larger entertainment and media system has long been a source of lively discussion in America. Since the advent of the radio, then television, then cable, now internet — there have always been groups of people asking questions about what these advances in technology will mean for US life and what, if any, cautions or guidelines should be embraced to ensure their productive use. How do we consume entertainment? And what is the impact that we experience personally or in the community? What are your perspectives on entertainment and media issues?
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- What is your favorite type of entertainment? What have you learned about other people from your entertainment?
- How close is your experience in real life compared to life presented in your entertainment?
- Were you ever surprised when what you learned in entertainment is different from real life? What happened?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.
A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation.
