Stephanie's Artist Statement:
This project is a combination of my passion for media and my heart for human trafficking. Non-profits are primarily founded by activists and lawyers who forget about the importance of developing a successful media department. My goal is to analyze three different mediums (viral marketing, documentary film, and website) utilized by small non-profits particularly in the human trafficking world. I will look at what makes them "good" or successful and why, through writing three short critique papers. Then, a presentation will summarize these and tie them together looking at the question of "So what?" and what can we take from this into other areas of communication.
