Solutions Media Design Jam
Media Democracy Day 2017 will focus on the theme of “Solutions Media”, and include a series of pecha kucha talks, round tables and workshops on the subject. This Jam will run in parallel with other activities during the full day conference. The Jam will ask participants to put on their future thinking caps and explore new ways that citizens might contribute to the production of solutions media. All Media Democracy Day conference attendees have the option to attend the Jam, including students and media professionals. The overall goal of the Jam will be to generate a variety of ideas for citizen engagement that could potentially be realized by solutions media practitioners and or proactive citizens. Expected outcomes include producing a diverse range of new ideas, generating a deeper understanding of solutions media for participants and how citizens can play a role, and finally to create a fun and engaging space where connections can be fostered among participants.
