In partnership with SFU's school of communication

Join us for the 16th annual Media Democracy Days conference happening on November 15th and 16th at the Inspiration Lab at the Vancouver Public Library and November 19th at SFU Vancouver’s Harbour Centre Campus!

Since 2001, our annual conference, Media Democracy Days (MDD), has become the signature event for alternative, independent, and democratic media in Canada. MDD has since expanded into a multi-day event presented by the School of Communication at SFU, and the Vancouver Public Library.

We define media broadly, as the technologies, tools, and techniques used to communicate with the world.

We’re changing our program this year, with the aim of creating new and dynamic ways for partner groups to participate. MDD 2016 will be a community based collaborative event. Our aim is to provide a platform to grow and connect media activism in the city. Find out how to get involved here.
