MNN Friday: "Public Access 2.0" / You(r)Tube" Panel

by Webadmin, Dec 3 2009 - 4:28pm

New York Film/Video Council and Manhattan Neighborhood Network presents
"Public Access 2.0 = You(r)Tube" Panel
Friday, December 4th at 6:30pm

@ Manhattan Neighborhood Network
537 West 59th Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues) in Manhattan
Subway: A/B/C/D/1 to 59th Street-Columbus Circle

Public Access Television was designed as an "electronic greenspace" to ensure airwaves and support for local individual and non-profit voices in a time of corporate control of the airwaves.  How does this "electronic greenspace" thrive under recent hostile legislation and the flowering of the internet age?

Despite current legislation that threatens to restrict licenses, public access centers continue to extend their mission as not only as channel operators but as community media centers that provide training and access to all forms of electronic media.  Recent advances in web 2.0 media distribution tools offer additional opportunities for communities to broaden their audience and reach.

Come hear from people working on the front lines of community media- from a public access television station, a PBS station, an independent filmmakers group and a open video/open source media organization who will discuss the urgent challenges, opportunities and ways for you to get involved (as a media producer, public media advocate, or a citizen).

Confirmed speakers include Zenaida Mendez of Manhattan Neighborhood Network, Dorothy Thigpen of Third World Newsreel, Nan Rubin of Channel Thirteen and Anne Jonas of Participatory Culture Foundation.

Reception to Follow.
Please RSVP to alexacoyle@gmail.com or to the NYFVC Hotline (212) 330-0450

About the Alliance for Community Media

Mission Statement

In order for democracy to flourish, people must be active participants in their government, educated to think critically and free to express themselves.

The Mission of the Alliance for Community Media is to advance democratic ideals by ensuring that people have access to electronic media and by promoting effective communication through community uses of media.

The Alliance for Community Media is committed to assuring everyone’s access to electronic media. The Alliance advances this goal through public education, a progressive legislative and regulatory agenda, coalition building and grassroots organizing.

A nonprofit, national membership organization founded in 1976, the Alliance represents over 3,000 Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) access organizations and community media centers throughout the country. It also represents the interests of millions of people who, through their local religious, community and charitable groups, use PEG access to communicate with their memberships and the community as a whole.

Local community groups, public schools, religious institutions, colleges and universities, government officials, the disabled, and second language communities as well as national institutions such as NASA, the US Department of Education, and the US Army, to name a few, all use PEG facilities and equipment to advance their causes through cable television and the Internet.

The Alliance for Community Media provides critical support services for these community media centers and for the primarily volunteer staff that keep these electronic outposts of democracy in operation. The Alliance’s activities in providing technical assistance, grassroots organizing and opportunities to share experience promote the broader goals of supporting our nation’s communities and families and promoting effective communication through community use of media.

The Alliance’s public policy program is dedicated to promoting legislation and regulation which supports PEG access. To achieve this, the Alliance works with Congress, state legislatures, the Federal Communications Commission, state public utilities commissions, and coalition partners and brings suits when necessary in courts around the country.
