Media Democracy Day: Solutions Media

November 18

Free

Using the power of media and technology to advance social change, we see Vancouver and its region as a hotbed of Solutions Media makers. This year at Media Democracy Day, leading thinkers in this new space of communication, from videographers to coders, will share their perspective its meaning and potential. We are planning a dynamic program which includes a solutions media showcase, roundtables, a design jam, workshops and interactive public art installation.

Since 2001, our annual conference, Media Democracy Days (MDD), has become the signature event for alternative, independent, and democratic media in Canada. MDD has since expanded into a multi-day event presented by the School of Communication at SFU, and the Vancouver Public Library.

When: November 18th, 10am – 6pm
Where: Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch
Partners: SFU School of Communication, SFU Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT), Vancouver Public Library, Gen Why Media, Graham Spry Fund, Vancouver Design Nerds
