Visit the BCCLA at the Media Democracy Day Fair!
Media Democracy Day (MDD) is about democratization both through the media, and of the media. This means using the media for democratic self-governance; and reshaping the media themselves to make them more accessible, accountable, representative.
Vancouver has many wonderful cultural, media and arts festivals; that’s part of what makes the city as vibrant as it is. MDD draws on and is inspired by many of these festivals, but our project is a bit different. In the broadest and non-partisan sense, it is a political event, because democracy is always a political concept. It’s about how we govern ourselves, what contributions the media make to that process – and, perhaps most importantly, how we as citizens govern the media.
