Please join us at our third annual Texas Tribune/MediaShift Mixer at ISOJ in Austin on April 16, 2015, sponsored by KLRU, KUT and UNITY: Journalists for Diversity. The Mixer will be a celebration for the end of our Collab/Space Austin workshop and the kickoff for the 16th Annual International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ)! It will be a great way to meet other people in the international community of online journalists or local Austin media folks — and without the crush of SXSW! You don’t have to attend ISOJ to attend the Mixer.
Please RSVP here to reserve your spot!
