The 7th Annual BRIC Media Maker Weekend is a three-day conference featuring free workshops, lectures, and panel discussions designed to educate makers on various aspects of media and content creation, from television, film, and podcasting. The Weekend will also be a networking opportunity for makers and content creators for future collaborations. The 2022 theme is “Homecoming.” After two years of the weekend taking place virtually, BRIC Media Maker Weekend is making a triumphant return to an in-person format. But more than a return to BRIC House, “Homecoming” symbolizes a new commitment to engagement, interaction, and collaboration that we once took for granted.
