GLOBAL UPRISINGS / Event De Balie Amsterdam

Sunday 17 November: 14.00-15.30

Media, Communication, Outreach

This session will explore the many ways in which movements relate to both mainstream and social media. How did the movements reach the wider public? How did they develop new technologies themselves? What forms of face-to-face communication were essential? The speakers represent a mix of experiences and positions vis-à-vis the media. Some of them engage with the mainstream media in creative and subversive ways, others develop humorous campaigns with a spectacular elements to attract the attention of the public as well as mainstream media, while still others develop alternative channels of communication to reach the public through social media, video and blogs or by designing software and hardware tools to facilitate communication within, between and from the movements.

Not an Alternative (New York City, US), Leonidas Martin (Enmedio, Barcelona, Spain), Salma Said (Mosireen, Cairo, Egypt) with Jerome Roos (ROARmag.org) as discussant.
