Gabriel Kahan: Filmmaker, Producer, and Lecturer, MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology
Multi-screen, rapid consumption of content is opening up new ways to communicate and engage viewers, in particular youth. At the same time, the complexities of modern social dynamics require one to develop novel ways of thinking about the role of government. Creating content that is both informative and adaptable to the user is key if we are to engage youth in understanding and working with government to solve our most pressing issues.
Drawing upon his experience delivering new media content to millions of users in the developing world, Kahan engages in open-ended discussion with the audience about the need for repurposing the narrative form to educate, inspire, and identify the next big ideas for governance and civil society in the 21st century.
