Description

2019 Community Media Conference

Book now for the UK's largest Community Media conference to be held at Quay House, BBC MediaCityUK in Salford on Saturday 28th September - tickets are available below at only £25 per person!

This is a different event to the Citizen Journalism Workshop taking place the following day for which separate booking is required.

The theme of this year's Conference is "We Need To Talk" to recognise that the community media sector needs to talk to Government, to funders, and to the wider media industry.

The 2019 Community Media Conference will address a number of key themes:

The outline Conference agenda is below (subject to change):

09:00 Registration and networking

10:00 Opening & Welcome from CMA Chairman and Vice-Chair with Mike Shaft

10:15 Workshops and discussions

12:15 Lunch & Networking

13:15 Plenary session on Small-Scale DAB with Peter Madry from Ofcom

15:00 Workshops and discussions continued

16:00 Break

16:15 Closing session with Paul Dennett, City Mayor of Salford

16:30 Networking

17:00 Finish

We need to talk to each other about the upcoming changes around small-scale digital audio broadcasting, we need to talk about citizen journalism, and we need to talk about essential skills to develop talent and keep the sector sustainable. As a society, we need to talk more - and community media is the ideal platform for facilitating those conversations and advancing social change.

The Community Media Conference will bring together broadcasters, producers, community developers, publishers, media enthusiasts, creatives and academics for a day of learning, exchange, and celebration with inspiring speakers, workshops and networking opportunities.
