Reminder: Beauty (Mis)represented? is tomorrow

March 4th, 2009     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

I hope some of you can make it to this. The panel features folks with a diverse range of views on the practice of photo-retouching and advertising, including folks who work in/with the advertising industry.

Announcing the first event in the Media Action Presents series:

Beauty (Mis)Represented: What’s the matter with airbrushing advertisements?

Is photo-manipulation in advertising benign and irrelevant, or damaging and indefensible? Join Media Action Media (formerly known as MediaWatch) in its first public discussion as we debate the issue from all sides.

Featuring: Shari Graydon (author, activist and Media Action Media member) Stacey May Fowles (publisher of Shameless Magazine and author of Be Good) Tonika Morgan (community activist and member of the Medina Collective) Ivan Pols (Associate Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather)

  • Thursday, March 5 * 7:30-9 p.m. * Room 5-280 * Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (252 Bloor St W) * Free *

In Partnership with The Centre for Women’s Studies in Education and Shameless Magazine
