After much work in planning (and more than a bit of perspiration!) I wanted to share with you that registration for our 2nd Collaborations for Cause conference, April, 26-27th in Portland, OR is now open. Collaborations for Cause, which we're hosting in partnership with Ecotrust, brings together photographers, NGOs, activists and communications professionals to discuss the collaborative future of visual storytelling.
I wanted to let you know right away because this conference is designed to be a more intimate event with limited seating and, more importantly, many of the documentary photographers who will be featured in The Blue Earth Book will be participating in this two-day conference and presenting their latest photography. This will be a great chance to hear about their amazing field work across the globe in person.
We're very excited by the lineup we'll be bringing to Portland, including Ed Kashi, Amy Yenkin, Matt Black, Gary Braasch, Benj Drummond & Sara Joy Steele, Glenn Ruga, Dan Shepherd, Finn Ryan, Andy Maser, Jason Houston, Amy Kober, and others. Check out the program for details.
Several of our Kickstarter backers opted for the Collaborations for Cause ticket level, and I'll be in touch to confirm your conference reservation shortly.
In the meantime, I also wanted to report that our editors, Jason Houston and Whitney Johnson, are continuing work on The Blue Earth Book. We're on schedule and will be announcing the final line-up shortly!
