A message to the greater community of the Minneapolis Television Network
Please join Tene Wells, the new Executive Director of the Minneapolis Television Network for a discussion about the future of Community Media.
“Community media exists to enhance community participation with a view to bring some transformation in society. As people participate in decisions that affect them, the media is viewed as a tool that is informative and educative, therefore make communities think and speak for themselves.” (Lierovw2011). MTN and other media outlets are uniquely positioned to seek broader consensus among all residents and share the stories of the all the people that live, work and play in our Cities.
Producer, community media professional or anyone interested in the community media, please attend a WINE AND CHEESE RECEPTION on:
Monday November 14th from 6:30- 8:30 pm
At MTN Studios, 820 18TH Avenue NE MPLS
To lead this discussion and share their insights we invited:
Mike Wassenaar, President & CEO of the Alliance for Community Media, the organization which supports, promotes and defends Public, Educational and Government Access television in the United States.
And Adaobi Okolue, executive director of the Twin Cities Media Alliance and publisher of TCMA’S principal media arts project, the Twin Cities Daily Planet. TCMA is a nonprofit media arts organization dedicated to equipping community members – particularly individuals from marginalized communities – with the power of media arts to define and amplify their narratives, connect across communities, and ultimately drive new thinking and engagement around their stories.
Following the discussion we will have time to network. Please RSVP clicking the link below, by November 11th
