Media That Matters: Story Money Impact is a practical workshop for media-makers, principled funders, and highly motivated activists who want to ensure their work makes an undeniable difference.  This intimate conference illuminates the spark of engagement at the core of these three pursuits. Structured around case studies from the front lines, Story Money Impact reveals best practices in the areas of documentary, digital content, and independent journalism. It explores how these professions can synergize with funders who want maximum leverage for their resources and reach, while  partnering with strategic innovators who can highlight those results with more robust evaluation tools.

Come share expertise and experiences with your colleagues, and cross-pollinate with other sectors in ways that are seldom possible at most industry events -- all in a collaborative, creative, spectacular setting at Hollyhock on Cortes Island.
