The AltMedia Experience will bring together a variety of community and corporate partners, media creators, innovators and activists around the themes of alternative media, new media, citizen journalism, and advocacy. The week-long event, at the end of July, will include a wide variety of activities, including media-focused art exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, and discussions, as well as fun and participatory cultural events in the evenings. This event is the first public (pre-launch) event at the new AltCity media/tech/social impact collaboration space that will be launching in Hamra this fall, and we’re excited to bring people into this space while it is still very much “in development” in order to engage the broader community in the design of both the physical space and the services/activities that will take place there.
The organization of The AltMedia Experience revolves heavily on openness and collaboration. Beyond providing logistical support and a venue, AltCity aims to bring together relevant organizations, companies, and individuals to organize and run different parts of the exhibition and events. We are also looking for corporate sponsors to help make this event possible. This will truly be a “crowd-sourced” event… join us!
