Does your community need more independent media?
Thanks to national legislation, we are facing the biggest expansion of community radio in US history, with stations soon to be available in most major cities where they can reach up to half a million listeners. Learn how to form a local coalition to start a radio station in your community and stream online. Integrate multimedia, community engagement, arts, and journalism into your station. Learn about public broadband and community wireless. Produce media, get fundraising support, and learn how to do outreach.
Whether you're an experienced broadcaster, or if you've never made media before, come learn how you can help expand community radio and amplify voices in your town or city! Look at the sessions and presenters.
$75-125 for the weekend. Childcare (ages 1-9 ), rideshare forum, and Spanish translation are available. As are worktrades and scholarships.
Hosted by Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center, a vibrant community center and home to WRFU Radio Free Urbana 104.5 LP-FM.
