Mapping Community Media (University of Leicester, UK)
November 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
What’s the Work that Community Media Does?
The Community Media Association recognises the need to widen its research remit so that it can better support community media groups with evidence that can be used to assess the social impact that community media has. Community media activists and practitioners need an independent and recognised evidence base when talking with UK government, regulators, local government, NGOs, funding bodies, civic development groups.
Led by the University of Leicester’s Dr Katie Moylan, and the Community Media Association’s Dr Rob Watson, this event will bring together researchers and community media practitioners to assess and map where and how community media in the U.K. is being produced and studied, with a view to determining how it can more productively be evaluated.
Emphasis will be given to considering potential areas of future research collaboration between community media practitioners, community development advocates, civic engagement and social policy developers, digital engagement practitioners, social and civic services commissioners, and beyond.
