Event description

Description

New media has provided citizens and communities with new opportunities to share information and news. Similar to traditional news media, community media enterprises have needed to adapt to utilise new technologies, such as streaming services, social media and mobile apps. The growth of citizen journalism also provides a new perspective on how information may be obtained and shared by individuals and in local communities. In recent years, there has been a renewed engagement with citizen and community media enterprises to provide a platform to local voices, including those of youth, women, seniors, culturally and linguistically diverse groups and other marginalised groups in society. New media technologies have been a blessing in disguise, imposing a cost on traditional community broadcasting enterprises, and yet removing entry barriers for citizens/individuals to become part of the community media landscape.

This conference explores how citizen and community media enterprises can be enhanced and their capabilities improved through new technologies, policies, infrastructures and collaborations, and tackling any hindrances to such innovation. The conference also provides a space for sharing of experiences and knowledge in citizen and community media enterprises across national borders.
