Registration is now open for the Making Media Public Conference, taking place
May 6-8, 2010 at York University in Toronto.
Please register here. There is an early reduced rate if you register before April 23, 2010.
The conference will offer a unique opportunity to exchange experiences, ideas and strategies, to critique current models of media production, to problem-solve, and to envision new ways to democratically facilitate people’s participation in media decision-making. The goal is to help “make media public” – that is, to develop and build media models that address local concerns, that are sustainable, autonomous and independent, and involve a wide range of participation that reflect the daily political economic, social and cultural experiences of communities in Canada.
