Started in July of 2011 as “Transmedia Toronto” a simple meetup-‐group, Transmedia 101 has relaunched as an organizaIon that: brings like-‐minded innovators together to discuss, experiment and push transmedia forward; educates and elevates the understanding of the possibiliIes transmedia strategies can support; raises industry awareness and spotlights the profiles of transmedia professionals, both Canadian and InternaIonal, who are acIvely engaged in the field; and connects our growing local/ Canadian community to an internaIonal network of transmedia pracIIoners through guest speakers, workshops and master classes.
