The idea is to provide a forum for debate and discussion about how mainstream media can engage with communities on a local, global and cultural level.
We have been working closely with the Paris-based user-generated content agency Citizenside in putting together this conference. It will focus on three key areas: quality and values, money and resources, and practicalities.
There'll be keynote speeches, panel discussions, 10/10 presentations and networking opportunities throughout the day.
The speakers include:
Jan Schaffer, executive director, J-Lab
Adrian Van Klaveren, controller, BBC Radio 5 Live
Jon Kingsbury, programme director, NESTA
Garrett Goodman, Citizenside
Ade Oshineye, Google+
Mark Rock, founder, Audioboo
Paul Egglestone, University of Central Lancashire
Henry Peirse, founder, GRNLive.
This free event will begin at 9am and end at 5pm. If you'd like to come along, register here.
