Spearheaded by Professor Ann Light (Northumbria University) and Tamar Millen (Community Media Association),the Connected Communities Media Collection (CCMC) brings together community-made media outputs from Connected Communities projects across the UK. The resource has been built to give a home to media outputs from the whole Connected Communities programme (providing they carry public permissions). You can view the working prototype here. In order to think carefully about and explore ways in which this resource can be developed further and effectively used, Ann and Tamar are inviting anyone interested to attend a day of short seeding talks and discussions, culminating in recommendations for further development and/or collaborations at a free event entitled Future Thinking: Connected Communities Media Collection on Wednesday 29th October 2014, 9:30am – 4pm at Media City, Salford University. As there are a few places left for academic and community media practitioners, contact Tamar to find out more or book a spot as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org.
