You are invited to join the March 10th Media and Technology Convergence that will bring together free media makers, including autonomous and alternative media activists, journalists, hackers, academic researchers, etc, who are attending and/or organizing events around the upcoming World Social Forum (WSF).
The WSF an international meeting of civil society that brings together tens of thousands participants from social movements, non-governmental organizations, and grassroots collectives to cultivate alternatives to the current economic model and provide opportunities to collaboratively build alternative global politics. The next WSF will be held in Montreal between August 9th and 14th 2016 (http://fsm2016.org).
Media and technology issues have been given a varying importance in the WSF gatherings. In past social forums, independent media press rooms were put in place to support alternative coverage of the WSF. Workshops and panels were also organized about thematics such as media and power, Internet governance, and digital surveillance. Additionally, since 2009, a “thematic forum” called the World Forum on Free Media (or WFFM) has been created, which will gather for its 5th edition during the upcoming WSF.
In preparation for the WSF in Montreal, the Local Organizing Committee of this year’s WFFM is inviting organizations and individuals active on issues of media and technology to attend this first convergence. Apart from presenting the WFFM, this event will serve as a meeting place for people to know each other and to coordinate their activities. Alternative media coverage of the WSF will also be on the agenda. We expect this collaborative meeting will strengthen WSF activities related to media and technology.
Remote participation will be available on demand. If you require remote participation or more information, please contact the Local Organizing Committee for the World Forum on Free Media by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Articles de la Rubrique
