About the 2022 Future of the Creative Industry Conference:
We will discuss the legacy of exclusion in the creative industry. Rather than dwelling on the negative, we will show how to overcome these systemic obstacles and literally "get a seat at the table" and "be in the room where it happens.” In this bi-coastal, two-date event, we will gather scholars, industry executives, documentarians, community leaders, and creatives to tackle the concept of disenfranchisement through the lens of enfranchisement in the creative industry.
This two-part, hybrid event will take place on Emerson’s campuses—our beloved Boston on January 29, and the iconic Los Angeles on February 5. In-person attendance will be subject to each city’s covid-related policies. However, virtual participation will be available to anyone, anywhere.
