Moderated by Deidre Searcy, senior curriculum/design associate, Education Development Center. Presented by Michael Bancroft, executive director, Co-op Image; Mark Diaz, program associate, Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education; Nick Jaffe, chief editor, Teaching Artist Journal.

What are the authentic intersections between artmaking and the social networks made possible by new media?
