Sudbury Voices Event: Laurie McGauley

See video

On May 8, 2013, the Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op hosted a town hall meeting and community discussion. A panel of six residents of Sudbury who are deeply engaged with questions of what our community is and what it might become kicked off the evening, and lead into a larger conversation among the forty people who attended about what we want and how to get there. We have been posting videos of the talks given by the six panellists. This is the last of the 6, and shows Laurie McGauley, a well respected local community activist.  She is perhaps best known as a founder of Myths and Mirrors Community Arts, but is also recognized for her work in social justice, women's rights, and others.

We also want to hear from other residents -- from you, about your vision for change in Sudbury and beyond. We encourage you to write a few paragraphs, to do a video blog, to design an image, or to find some other way to express your answer to the question, "What kind of change would you want to see in your community and world?". Then you can go to, make an account, and post it. If you'd prefer, instead of posting it yourself, you can email it to us at and we can post it for you. Be sure to include your name and a few lines about yourself, and put the words "Sudbury Voices" in the title.

We want to hear your voices, Sudbury!

(Thanks to Billy Bruhmuller for loaning us the equipment and editing the videos.)

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op is creating independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media. Contact the Sudbury Working Group at or follow us on Facebook.

Support local grassroots media - get a membership! Our goal is to raise $2000 per year to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Help us reach that goal.  Download a membership form here

We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.

We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.  We also have resources available to help grassroots groups get their message out.  Find out more here.
