In preparation for this year’s World Social Forum (WSF) in Montreal, the Local Organizing Committee of the World Forum on Free Media (WFFM) is inviting organizations and individuals to attend its first convergence.
The meeting is expected to strengthen WSF activities related to media and technology and create a networking space for its participants.
Stakeholders are thus invited to join the March 10th Media and Technology Convergence that will bring together free media makers, including autonomous and alternative media activists, journalists, hackers, academic researchers, etc., who are attending or organizing events around the upcoming WSF.
Remote participation will be available on demand and alternative media coverage of the WSF will also be on the agenda. For more information on remote participation, contact the Local Organizing Committee for the World Forum on Free Media by email.
The WSF is an international meeting of civil society that brings together participants from social movements, non-governmental organizations, and grassroots collectives to cultivate alternatives to the current economic model and provide opportunities to collaboratively build alternative global politics.
The next WSF will be held in Montreal between August 9th and 14th 2016.
