We are back online – welcome to the brand new website! Take a look around.
It’s only fair we give you an update on what has been happening in the world of King Lambie. First of all, we have funding! Back in August we applied to O2 Think Big and received some money from them to start the ball rolling for our long term plan of a community media hub in Glasgow.
This has also kick started the plans for International Community Media Day which is coming along nicely, the event will be in Glasgow on November 4th so keep tuned for updates.
The event will be one of many hosted across the world on that day, with our partner Citizen’s Eye in Leicester, pulling in feeds from over 25 different countries to get a picture of community media – looking to be an exciting day!
Having been in many meetings, drank many coffees, pepsi’s and the occasionally glass of champagne, we have pulled together a panel of community radio stations to discuss and answer questions on the day. We also have guest speakers from across Scotland’s community media hubs and projects getting ready to explain to us what they do.
We also have a few workshops lined up for those of you who want to learn a bit more about TV, radio and social media. More details on this will be revealed soon.
The Community Media Cafe we held in DNA Glasgow last month was a great starting point for us and offered us an idea of what community media advice is needed in the city and gave us an insight into what people already know. The research taken from this will hopefully mean that International Community Media Day will be focussed on interesting topics and workshops that you want to hear about.
It’s all go in King Lambie HQ, and with one half of the team heading abroad for a bit – we will have some community media research from overseas to add into the mix too.
Stay tuned for continuing updates on International Community Media Day and use the hashtag #commedia13 – keep your diaries free!
