Kids Media: Storytelling for Gen Z and Gen Alpha

Thursday, Jan. 26
2-3:30 p.m. MT/4-5:30 p.m. ET
Zoom Webinar

Generation Z and the youngest generation, Alpha, are surrounded by media content 24/7/365 and do not know life without it. Has there been a change in how current storytelling deals with issues such as diversity, equity and inclusion; representation; and mental health to better inform our most vulnerable audience? Join us for a lively discussion on emerging trends in the domestic and global youth film and media marketplace.
