General Public 

New Media Advocacy Project, in partnership with the United Nations Summer Study program at The New School, invites you to join activists, visual storytellers, media-makers and theorists from Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the United States to explore how visual storytelling can change the tide on some of the toughest social issues around the world. Rights Reframed will combine The New School’s long-standing tradition of political dissent and experimental theory with NMAP’s ten-year focus on creating strategic media narratives in service of human rights. Over the course of two hours, audience members are invited to engage with participants in three themed discussions:
