Be The Media! Workshop with Dee Dee Halleck: Freedom to Connect
March 23, 2013 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm EDT
What is the structure of the vast World Wide Web? Who owns the wires? Who controls access? As education, creativity and science become more dependent on this technology, it is crucial that people globally participate in the protection and development of open infrastructure and a democratic base for Internet governance. To explore infrastructure and governance, and stake back the claims for free speech, this workshop will include: a report back from DeeDee Halleck on ICANN – the “multi-stake holder” world of domain regulation; and a report back from Steve Pierce and David Banks on Freedom to Connect: public nets and access.
Organized by legendary media activist DeeDee Halleck, as part of the Changing the Climate: (r)Evolution for Social and Environmental Justice.
Be The Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members in order to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including video, radio and journalism.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
