The decision to organize Conference on Migration and Media Awareness 2017, the first ever Dialogue of Media Practitioners, Policy Makers, Activists and Newcomers (Refugees/Migrants) was conceived by Larry Macaulay, founder of Refugee Radio Network. The CMMA 2017 is a two-day conference jointly organized by Refugee Radio Awareness Network, Arbeitsgemeinschaft Radio e.V Freies Sender Kombinat) and Kampnagel Internationale Kulturfabrik.
?It convenes approximately 250 participants to engage in discussions with key stake holders (policy makers, educators, social workers, activists, bloggers, journalist, or representatives of communities) around the importance of social empowerment and participation.
Our attention will turn to current issues such as Refugeeism, Migrantism, Multiculturalism, Mainstreamism and the negative media narrative. The purpose of the conference is to create a forum that brings together community media projects promoted by Migrants and Refugees and mainstream media in discussion panels, workshops and exhibitions.
The CMMA 2017 sees community media as important enablers of freedom of expression, producers of counter alternative narratives, and promoters of media pluralism and diversity.
