Please RSVP

Join us for a town hall meeting about media and democracy! The documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times, which chronicles the transformation of the media industry in the face of changing economic and technological realities, will frame the conversation. We will explore how the shifting media landscape impacts our democracy, and what that means for the news and information needs of local communities, especially in Boston. Clips from the film will be shown, several media experts will be asked to share their thoughts and experience on this changing landscape, and audience participation will be strongly encouraged.

This meeting is the opening event of the Social Movements/Digital Revolutions Conference. It will be hosted by the Boston Media Reform Network and is sponsored by Free Press, Lesley University, Mass. Global Action, MIT Comparative Media Studies, MIT Center for Civic Media and Open Media Boston with support from Participant Media.
