In 1986, a conference gathered in Sheffield to discuss a manifesto
proposing cultural democracy. Cultural democracy is a very simple yet
powerful idea. It proposes that democracy is never merely "political" and
that in a media-drenched society we need to have equal access to the means
of cultural input as well as cultural outputs. Who gets to tell the story
determines in large part the nature of the story that the rest of us hear.
Thirty years later the ideas behind cultural democracy are still powerful
and timely. We are gathering at Access Space in Sheffield, UK on June 11
2016 to see if we now have the tools to turn these ideas into action.

The day is led by Dr. Owen Kelly, one of the original conference
organisers, and now Principal Lecturer In Online Media at Arcada
University, Helsinki, Finland. tinyurl.com/zw7cmeq
