Join us for our 16th annual free public conference!

When: November 18th, 10am – 6pm
Where: Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch

Using the power of media and technology to advance social change, we see Vancouver and its region as a hotbed of Solutions Media makers. This year at Media Democracy Day, leading thinkers in this new space of communication, from videographers to coders, will share their perspective its meaning and potential.

The Spry Memorial Lecture will launch MDD with a critical reflection of Solutions Media and how it might play a role in a strong, vibrant, and civically engage Canadian media landscape. After our minds have been sparked, we’ll invite the public to unpack the idea of solutions media and help brainstorm how media can be a vehicle for deeper public engagement. What works? What’s next? Come, collaborate, help invent the next wave of solutions-focused media.

We are planning a dynamic program which includes a solutions media showcase, roundtables, a design jam, workshops and interactive public art installation.
