ACOSS-NCIE Media Forum 2015

Seminar | The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE)
Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 9:30am - 5:00pm
Redfern, New South Wales

This Media Forum is part of the 2015 ACOSS National Conference ‘Advancing the Common Good’, to be held on 25-26 June.

How are grass roots community organisations navigating the new media landscape to tell their own stories in positive ways? How is civil society using its own voice to challenge the often negative framing in media discourse about minority groups and building a social movement toward a more inclusive Australia?

ACOSS is partnering with The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) to bring communicators from Not For Profit organisations together – working on similar issues and campaigns – for a day of learning, sharing, and networking.

The forum is an opportunity to share experiences through dialogue and showcasing innovative models and infinite ways to tell our own stories and world views for a shared future.

It’s a chance for media, communications, campaign and advocacy workers to link up and explore ways of working together to achieve the positive social change we all want, an excellent Australia for all.

The forum includes:

  • A dynamic panel of working journalists and community based communicators;
  • A workshop on ‘framing’ conducted by one of Australia’s foremost communications strategists Alex Frankel;
  • Facilitated networking on advocacy issues supported by the NFP Comms Network;
  • A session on how to effectively use digital media to unlock our collective reach as a powerful movement for inclusive social change.
