Every year, the Media Democracy Festival brings together activists, independent media organisations, academics and policymakers to understand what’s happening in the media landscape. Whether you’re a hardened media reform advocate, a disillusioned media worker looking for change, or a curious media consumer, join us and help to reshape the media so that it works for people, not profit.
Featuring keynote addresses on investigative journalism, alongside debates on ‘alt-news’ channels, coverage of the Israel/Gaza conflict and priorities for media reform, this year’s Media Democracy Festival is set to be an energising, thought-provoking and urgent gathering.
With economic crises, global conflicts and an upcoming UK general election all exposing the failures of our current media system, strengthening the movement for a transformed democratic media is more vital than ever.
Our media is broken. Be part of the movement to fix it.
