New York City will become the epicenter of the media democracy movement this February, when hundreds of journalists, scholars, artists, and organizers gather to discuss how to strengthen and expand the city's vibrant network of independent media. The NYC Grassroots Media Conference, which will be held February 28 and 29 at New School University, will feature over 40 workshops and panels conducted by more than 40 local organizations on topics ranging from video production to puppet-making; from how to start your own record label to practical ways that community media can help fight environmental racism. The goals of the weekend-long event are to promote awareness of the independent media in the city, to strengthen and unify the city’s independent media community, and to create strong bonds among community groups and local media makers.
