The MRC has been running our annual Media Democracy Festival since 2015. Every year, we bring together academics, activists and decision-makers to understand what’s going on in the media landscape, build connections and strengthen the movement for a different media. Since 2020, the Media Democracy Festival has been run as a mix of online and in-person sessions.
“I can think of nothing more important in this day and age than dealing with the question of media, access to knowledge and how we get ideas across to people. The Media Democracy Festival is very much part of that process and I hope we’re all going to come out more determined to build a real alternative media system, not just in this country but all around the world.”Jeremy Corbyn
