Civilmedia09: “Social & Technological Innovation In Open-Access Media” – 5.-7. November 2009
Social and Technological Innovation in Open-Access Media
Salzburg, November 5 – 7, 2009
The Civilmedia will be a landmark at the end of the “European Year of Creativity and Innovation 2009”.
In bringing together international and national alternative media practitioners, researchers, policymakers, activists, and community development workers, we will review the importance ofcommunity media and Web 2.0 in fostering social as well as technological innovation.
In which way is open access media socially innovative? Which technological developments have been developed in this field and how are social and technological changes related? Which models for future action can we develop?
Radio and beyond
Non-commercial community radios are among the first players in electronic media participation.They have opened a new channel of communication for marginalized people and groups and new forms of cooperation among and between communities. Citizen Journalism and user generated content at community radio/tv stations and participatory Web 2.0 tools are important “laboratories” for experimenting in both, social and technological context.
The UnConference provides an open space for media activists, scholars, politicians, and the interested public. Everybody is encouraged to participate actively. Various forms of presentations, workshops, discussions etc. will allow a large vision on the field of participatory media and also permit that each contributor finds his or her specific place in the programme. Presentations of bestpractice projects are welcome.
