Hueniversity: Media Maker Panel Discussion 
SAT, FEB 15 | 3PM | FREE 

Museum Hue's mission is to foster the social cohesion, well-being, and economic impact that arts and culture offer creatives and communities of color. They craft a welcoming and supportive environment that encourages exploration, investigation, collaboration, imagination, and curation in museums throughout major cities, countrysides, and everywhere in between.

In partnership with BRIC, Musuem Hue will host a panel of media-makers who are creating space and telling their own stories, from cultural experiences to social justice issues. Together, we'll discuss utilizing these platforms to foster greater representation for people of color within the digital realm that extends out into the real world.
