The panel will also discuss the approach behind this revision, and why transparency and collaboration are a cornerstone of this living industry resource. SAMAG committee member and creative producer Lizzie Crouch will facilitate a panel of Penelope Benton, NAVA Executive Director, artist and researcher, Helen Pynor, and Code contributors Debra Keenahan and Vanessa Low. Vanessa is a writer, designer and photographer and developed the new social media section of the Code.
