DESCRIPTION
The future is accessible.

We create meaning through the power of media, and our actions today often lay the groundwork for the standards of tomorrow. As community media practitioners, we play an integral role in a constantly shifting culture. At Access the Future, we will challenge ourselves to build new structures for connecting our communities,improve our repertoire of media literacy training and tools, acquire helpful tips for strengthening grassroots networking, generate empathy using VR technology, craft accessible content with captioning, and more!

Programming will center around professional development for the next generation of community media leaders, emergent production techniques, better practices for reaching out to marginalized communities, and ideas for working better with youth. We will focus on collaborative efforts between PEG, community media centers, LPFM, public radio, independent filmmakers, and other media creators. Who should attend? Media makers, advocates, students, futurists, librarians, and scholars; natural partners with community media.

Join us for a two-day summit on empowering the public and preparing for the next phase of community media in society. This event also includes a social event on Friday evening and culminates with an awards program on Saturday night – Best of the Northwest – in which exceptional non-commercial programs are celebrated and honored.

WHO
Community media makers from NW North America: Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming
