Last chance for $18 admission to New Orleans New Media Conference

A Preview of Rising Tide 7
Every year, Rising Tide provides a unique forum for the critical examination of the city's most pressing issues and greatest assets. From our early years as a conference, pointing a lens at recovery efforts that fell short, Rising Tide's mission has been to gather and amplify citizen voices in service to building a greater future for New Orleans based on a thorough examination and active discussion of the issues facing our city now and in the future.
This year's conference will continue in that tradition. The recent restructuring of the Times-Picayune, and its untold effects on journalism, truth-telling, and democracy in New Orleans, will be discussed on the main stage. Participants will be announced in a future email.
Rising Tide will once again feature an additional stage of programming. We are excited to announce the following panels:
- Parenting in New Orleans, featuring: Ashley Bond of NOLAParent.com, Andrea Morvant of Pistolette.net, and Keith Spera, writer of the Times-Picayune's blog "The Paternity Test"
- The changing roles of New Orleans neighborhood associations, moderated by Alan Williams of Neighborland
- The challenges for new business owners and entrepreneurs, featuring Jeremy Miller of Shultzilla and Chris Trew of the New Movement Theater.
