Does the Media Really Burn Your Butter?

We thought we should tell you about an event happening today in Ballard. It's the Indy Media Mini-Fest taking place at the Foundry this afternoon - Saturday, March 13th!

Being a neighborhood blogger, we believe in the power of free speech. The Indy Media Mini-Fest will have workshops during the day, a panel discussion and then some bands! And it's all free (with the exception of the after party for which you can donate according to your budget.) We have been to some parties at the Foundry and they have been epic and awesome. Here's the schedule:

3:30 pm Doors open
4:00 pm Workshop: Basic camera
5:00 pm Workshop: Basic editing
6:00 pm Workshop: Using the Web (video distribution, blogging, social media)
7:00 pm Open Panel Discussion: Becoming the Media You Want to See in the World--Three independent media veterans briefly share their experiences followed by open discussion with an emphasis on tactics and real-world practices.
9:00 pm-ish Badlands
10:00 pm-ish Koozbane
11:00 pm-ish DJ Dr. Rich Lehl and Port-a-Party

You can check them out on Facebook by clicking HERE or visit the Web site. The Viking Fire Foundry is located at 4710 Ballard Ave.

See you there!

p.s. We're looking for writers who live in Ballard. If you're interested, send us an email and tell us why you think you should be a writer for Ballard Gossip Girl. The only requirement is that you live in our hood and you get out of your house every once in a while.
