Rita J. King is CEO and Creative Director of Dancing Ink Productions, a strategic creative content development and research company dedicated to the emergence of a new global culture and economy in the Imagination Age — defined by creative use of digital technology to inhabit ideas, facilitate new dialogue and collaborate on solutions to challenging issues. Rita works globally across platforms to produce creative mixed media, mixed-reality events, research projects, broadcasts and related products.
Rita is a Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, where she and Joshua S. Fouts recently completed the “Understanding Islam through Virtual Worlds” project that spanned four continents as well as the digital culture. She is a storyteller and a documentarian, the author of the seminal, widely taught Village Voice cover story, “Terms of Service: Sweaty Scenes from the Life of an AOL Censor.” For seven years while working as an award-winning investigative reporter, Rita’s primary focus was reporting on corporate culture. This work culminated in her report, “Big, Easy Money: Disaster Profiteering on the American Gulf Coast,” followed by a civil rights quest with the president of the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development that included an exploration of critical places across the American Deep South. She recently contributed a chapter in the 2009 edited volume, “Race, Place, and Environmental Justice After Hurricane Katrina.”
