When people say "a picture is worth a thousand words," they're right! Humans can understand what an image means in 13 milliseconds – 60,000 times faster than text. So how do we “read” news images when they're being delivered to us every minute of the day? Come join the conversation with our dynamic panel of data journalists, a photojournalist, and a cartoonist, who will talk about what goes into creating images, the power they have to express information, and how we can use critical skills in viewing them.
Cost is $15 per person and includes appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink) in the relaxed atmosphere of Schilling Beer Co.
