2021 Fall Webinar Series

Welcome to The Kalish Fall Series of webinars. Since March 2020, it’s been a helluva struggle and we have desperately missed our annual in-person workshop where life-long connections are made and The Kalish family grows.


To help support visual storytellers, the advisory board and faculty have put together a free webinar series open to 100 attendees per session via registration. The conversations that will take place during these sessions are just the beginning of what we are planning for the in-person June 2022 workshop. We hope you join us, and feel heard, supported, and ready to grow.

Kalish alumni Kyndell Harkness and Kevin Martin worked remotely, yet together, as picture editors at the Star Tribune and will discuss the Pulitzer Prize winning coverage from Minneapolis.
