In an effort to assist community, cultural, arts, and social justice groups in their communication and technology needs, the Community Media and Outreach Department at MNN is organizing a series of workshops open to organizations that are just getting started in using media, as well as those who have been using it for a while.
The presenters and panelists reflect the diverse pool of community media makers, advocates and activists in the field. They will provide a wealth of resources for your group to further engage in media as a tool for public education, outreach, advocacy, community-building and documentation, among others.
