Social and Technological Innovation in Open Access Media*

Salzburg, Nov. 4 - 7, 2009

The Civilmedia 09 will be a landmark at the end of the "European Year of 
Creativity and Innovation 2009".

In bringing together international and national alternative media 
practitioners, researchers, policy makers, activists, and community 
development workers, we will review the importance of community media 
and Web 2.0 in fostering social as well as technological innovation.

In which way is open access media socially innovative?
Which technological developments have been initiated in this field and 
how are social and technological changes related?
Which models for future action can we develop?

*Radio and beyond*
Non-commercial community radios are among the first players in 
electronic media participation. They have opened a new channel of 
communication for marginalized people and groups and new forms of 
cooperation among and between communities. Citizen Journalism and user 
generated content at community radio/tv stations and participatory Web 
2.0 tools are important "laboratories" for experimenting in both, social 
and technological context.

*Your participation*
The UnConference provides an open space for media activists, scholars, 
politicians, and the interested public. Everybody is encouraged to 
participate actively. Various forms of presentations, workshops, 
discussions etc. will allow a large vision on the field of participatory 
media and also permit that each contributor finds his or her specific 
place in the programme. Presentations of best-practice projects are welcome.

If you want to take part at the UnConference, please register at the 
wiki space at http://wiki.civilmedia.eu <http://wiki.civilmedia.eu>and 
propose your workshop or presentation on-line.
Have a frequent look at the wiki for an overview on what is going to happen!

There is no conference fee.

final highlight of "Civilmedia09?
