Media Moves for Social Change

May 30, 2007

Just getting back to work after a long weekend break with the family – more about that later!

Meanwhile, David from Mediaforum reminds me about the upcoming Media Moves conference in Galway on 8th June.  I had the pleasure of a brief meeting with David recently in Dublin and I was very impressed by the scope of his plans in relation to addressing media literacy issues.  I’m hoping to organise a chat with him for an upcoming Digiculture.

I still haven’t gotten around to setting up a site for Digiculture (or recording episode 2!) but here’s the feed.  It should also be available in iTunes later tonight.

Back to Media Moves.  It’s “a conference on understanding, shaping and creating media for social change“, and there are still some places available for pre-registration at www.mediaconference.ie.  You’ll also find the agenda, including details of a workshop on DIY Media.
