Reporting in the Age of Alternative Facts
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

What is the state of reporting in this new era of “alternative facts”? How can journalism succeed despite denial of access, censorship, media blackouts and attempts to delegitimize the press? As journalists, documentarians, reporters and editors, we are in uncharted waters, and our profession under fire like never before. 

As a response to this, the Journalism department of the College of Media, Communication and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder, is bringing together journalists, media scholars, lawyers, archivists, photographers and filmmakers for a one-day conference. The event will have kick off lively discussions on accountability through access and archives, leveraging community media, the rise of Trump and the facts on fake news, the impact of citizen journalism, and safety and storytelling on America’s new front line. The keynote will be presented by ProPublica’s senior editor, Joe Sexton. There will be panelists from the New York Times, The Nation, The Denver Post, KGNU, Rocky Mountain PBS and others. For students of journalism and members of the wider community, this is valuable opportunity to raise debate and discussion about how we got here, and where we’re headed. 

The conference will feature interactive multimedia events by the Portal and MAPE students, with the aim of promoting democracy through open dialogue and cross-community engagement.

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Peter and the Starcatcher
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Rick Elice
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever wondered what Peter Pan’s childhood was like before Wendy met him in Neverland? Rick Elice’s play, based on a best-selling 2006 novel, travels back to Peter’s early adventures in an orphanage, aboard a weather-beaten ship holding precious cargo, and on a magical remote island. “Peter and the Starcatcher” takes the theatergoers to golden grottoes, deep jungles and active volcanoes on adventures just as exciting as those in the classic story we all know and love.
