Mapping Media Democracy in Vancouver: A Launchpad for Action 


Facilitators:  Katie Raso & Amanda Gibbs

After a weekend of dialogue, celebrating best practices, and mapping community resources, what’s next?

This brief, action-oriented workshop is intended to provide a platform for participants to move through inspiration to collaboration and effective and focused action. Using a city map of crowdsourced resources, this facilitated session will; 


  • identify priority  issues mapped by conference participants,
  • locate existing projects and organizations to avoid duplicating our efforts,
  • offer support in setting up communities of  practice, and
  • share strategies and tactics for keeping the work alive. 



The decision to create a day of four Media Education Workshops and a Mapping Media Democracy Dialogue + Discussion represents the growing community of citizens concerned with media democracy issues in Vancouver.
All events are free, but pre-registration on this eventbrite page is necessary to ensure seats. If you are unable to attend the workshops, please let us know so we can give your ticket to someone else!
