The New England Graduate Media Symposium is an annual, one-day event hosted by the Visual and Media Arts Department of Emerson College. The purpose of this symposium is to create an occasion for graduate students to formally present media based work to each other, faculty, and professional colleagues. The symposium intends to foster the spirit and practice of exchange, collaboration, and intellectual community among members of the area’s various graduate programs, and to function as a springboard for future projects.
