ART + ISSUES: FREEDOM AND INTERNET FOR ALL, Nov. 20 | 6 P.M.

As the Gig City, Chattanooga has been touted as having the fastest internet in the western hemisphere, but what if corporations could pay to make their content move even faster, or, on the other hand, internet providers could slow down certain sites? Join Lindsey Frost Cleary of Mozilla in a discussion on net neutrality and equal access for all content and for all users, as we look at a collection piece at the Hunter.  And hear more about how the Hunter is partnering with the Chattanooga Public Library, the Public Education Foundation, WTCI and the Chattanooga History Center on Hyperaudio, an audio/video internet remixing platform that invites anyone to use their content and create new narratives online.

Like all art + issues programs, this evening is free to all in the community.
