Offer: Workshop on Citizen Journalism & Civil Resistance
As I was exploring the web today, I came across the call for applications "...from citizen journalists, communicators, bloggers, independent media makers, and others interested in providing coverage of political and social movements seeking rights, democracy and justice". This event will be held in Madrid, Spain from March 20-23, 2011. A flyer is attached, with an application deadline of 31 January, 2011, so don't be slow.
This workshop will help participants upgrade skills for people wishing to do something to end conflict and build a peaceful environment around them to live. Its stated aims are to help participants understand "...key strategic and tactical lessons of successful nonviolent movements, examine the role of independent media in civil resistance, look at the impact of digital resistance and international actors, and offer practical guidance to citizen or authentic journalists in developing stories, doing investigative field reporting, initiating video reports, and other practical aspects of citizen journalism in countries where civil resistance is now being used".
