BenMedFest Intro

  1. 2. Benevolent (be·nev·o·lent) Pronunciation:/bəˈnevələnt/ Adjective well meaning and kindly: a benevolent smile (of an organization) serving a charitable rather than a profit-making purpose: a benevolent fund
  2. 3. Benevolent Media is an exploration of storytelling and design for good. We focus on people, organizations and projects that compel audiences to care about a cause, take action on an issue, or promote a point of view through strategic and inspiring multimedia. “ Storytelling ” means anything to do with journalism, blogging, filmmaking or other narratives, based on fact and truth. “ Design ” means anything to do with graphics, interactive data, information visualization, branding and marketing, or other human-centered problem-solving and innovation. “ Good ” means anything to do with positive and lasting social or environmental change. And of course, for the public good, storytelling and design must exist through community engagement —both online and offline—in order to be inspiring, effective and sustainable. This can be achieved through social networking, events, partnerships, information-sharing and other types of relationship-building between content creators, consumers and curators.
