Media Democracy Festival

Sat, 16 Mar 2019, 10:00

Birkbeck University, London (UK), The Clore Centre, Birkbeck, University of London, Torrington Square, London, WC1 E7JL

Festival hosted by the Clore Centre at Birkbeck

The Media Democracy Festival brings together media democracy campaigners, journalists, researchers and citizens to take part in discussions on a range of issues from challenging bias to confronting Islamophobia and from how we can take on the tech platforms to producing a media manifesto for the next election. It has a fantastic range of speakers and workshops throughout the day.

The Media Democracy Festival is about imagining a media that informs, represents, and empowers us, and planning how we get there.

This year the festival is growing so that more people can attend. Our aim is to build a diverse and powerful movement for Media Democracy in the UK.

Join us on 16 March and be part of building a democratic media.
