Creative Cultures for Media Progression - An Unconference

Organised by the Faculty of Journalism, Information and Book Studies, University of Warsaw in collaboration with the City Hall of Warsaw

June 13, 2018, 9:30-18:00

Centrum Kreatywności Targowa

ul. Targowa 56, Warsaw

 

Why organise an ‘Unconference’?

Western media firms are having to adapt to a fully digital, multi-platform, interactive, responsive media landscape. For media managers this means leading change programmes that may involve redundancies, union negotiations, and the re-skilling of the workforce. This is difficult territory to negotiate. As scholars of media management we argue that we should not exempt ourselves from this same adaptation challenge. We therefore propose an ‘unconference’, an opportunity to explore a new method of exchanging knowledge, drawing in constituents we may not have engaged with before, using participatory peer to peer methods. The event is a pre-conference of the European Media Management Association gathering in Warsaw (June 14-15, 2018).
