Annual Retreat and Summit Sponsorships

IMG_0790-1.jpg
 

At Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh), we believe in the power of media to inspire us to imagine and create a better world. One of the key ways we do this is through our annual Retreat & Summit, a three-day event held at a retreat center in the Catskill Mountains of New York. This year, we expect to have our biggest summit yet -- over 100 attendees from academia and media of all kinds, including journalism, documentary film, photography, gaming, marketing, and the arts. Our speakers are authors, filmmakers, and journalists — all leader in their fields.

This is a rare opportunity for media makers of all kinds to come together in a bucolic, healing space to reconnect with peers, recharge from our stressful, busy lives, and find new ways to restore their community with story .

For the last 20 years, we’ve relied on the generosity of donors who see the potential for media to play a more positive role in the world. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to support journalists, artists, photographers and filmmakers in creating stories that heal.

ivoh Gold Sponsor ($5000): Contribute $5,000 to support the day-long retreat that will kick off this year's summit. 

Research shows that when media makers have the time and space to reflect -- on goals, biases, and intentions -- we can begin to widen the lens through which we view the world and cultivate a culture of authentic concern and care for ourselves and our work. We will:

Our fellows spent six months in communities across the U.S. telling stories of resilience in the aftermath or midst of difficult times.

Our goal in offering these services is to give attendees a chance to reflect on the work they do and take good care of themselves while they’re at the summit. We will:

  • Acknowledge your support at the session.
