On Saturday, December 6, 2014, #MadeInTheDMV will bring the innovators of DC, MD, and VA (DMV) together to share their talents with our region and nationwide. #MadeInTheDMV will highlight, educate, inspire, and unite the DMV arts and entertainment community by telling the stories and showcasing the talents of those who are #MadeInTheDMV.
The #MadeInTheDMV Conference is made possible in part by funding from Humanities Council DC and will focus on informing and educating our community in topic areas across the arts, entertainment, and technology led by notable industry and subject-matter-experts who are #MadeInTheDMV.
The Conference will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 8am-3pm at R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center at St. Elizabeths East, Gateway Pavilion, 2730 MLK Jr Ave SE, Washington, DC.
Conference panel and workshop topics include: Radio, Digital Distribution, Music Production, DJing, Blogging, Social Media, Branding & Marketing, and more.
