Shane Smith: Vice and the Art of Storytelling

Join the Art & Technology Committee for an evening with Shane Smith, founder and CEO of Vice Media. Vice launched in 1994 as a punk magazine distributed on the streets of Montreal, and has since become a global youth media brand with offices in 34 countries. It operates an international network of digital channels, a television production studio, a record label, an in-house creative services agency, a book-publishing house and a feature film division. Shane is also a critically acclaimed journalist. As the executive producer and host of the Emmy nominated news series, Vice, on HBO, Shane has reported from the world’s most isolated and difficult places, including North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Liberia. Shane makes no secret of his desire to help bring about the changing of the guard within the media. He believes young people are starting to find a voice, and they are not looking to traditional media to reflect that. With its upcoming launch of a global news channel, Vice is well on the way to becoming that voice. RSVP required at: artandtech@thenationalartsclub.org
