„A successful project“: Final meeting of ‚understanding media‘ took place in Finland

The final meeting of ‚understanding media‘ saw Turku as a meeting place. From the 17th through the 18th of May 2014 partners met at ‚Radio Robin Hood‘ to learn about their „Organic Radio Courses“ and to reflect on the work done as well as look to the future and how to continue…

In Between a national conference: Partner meeting in A Coruña, Spain

In the framework of the radio conference of the Spanish National Federation, partners from understanding media met in A Coruña in the north of Spain to talk about media education and media literacy courses in Spain, particularly Madrid.  The meeting in A Coruña was set for the 11th and 12th of April 2014 to suit the dates of the national conference of community radios in Spain. The partners discussed the meetings and mobilities so far. Attendees were invited to the Craol Media Literacy Conference to be held in Dublin, the next meeting will be in May in Finland.

In the last few years the community in Madrid have tried to find alternative to this lack of funding, they look to local elements in response to the crisis. Weiterlesen
