In this Living Room session, creative studio Chroma was in discussion with artist and researcher Salome Asega.
They explored and discussed methods of digital strategy, community organizing, and building partnerships that both inform and inspire their work.
Chroma shared past projects as well as more recent initiatives that speak to the urgency and power around grassroots mobilization via digital landscapes. Asega shared her own work that compliments similar frameworks and shared how her current position as a Technology Fellow at the Ford Foundation allows her to lift the work in her community. The session then opened up to Q&A from the audience.
