2016 Convention: Faith-based Communications: Bridges, Avenues, and Intersections
March 31 - April 2, 2016
Join the Religion Communications Council in Manhattan as we build “bridges” among faith groups, find “avenues” to new communications skills and discover “intersections” between faith groups and the world at large. Plenary and workshop topics at different locations throughout the city will include multi-religious activism, Google News Lab and the future of media, finding funding and resources, advanced social media training, and issues of religious freedom. Come be a part of the conversation in one of the world’s most exciting cities!
New York City
New York is a movable feast, a dynamic network of neighborhoods, peoples and faiths.
Our roving convention will allow participants to experience more of this great city and provide a focus as we discuss issues and concepts that relate to the parts of Manhattan where we will meet.
The NYC 2016 Convention will open on the historic upper west side of Manhattan at The Interchurch Center (located at 120th St and 475 Riverside Drive). The area includes historic Riverside Church, Jewish Theological Seminary, Union Theological Seminary, Barnard College, Teachers College, Columbia University, and Grant’s Tomb!
