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. Over the next several weeks we will be posting videos of the talks given by the six panellists. This is the 4rd, and shows Lisa Marie Naponse & Carla Petahtegoose, who talk about their goals to unite people, learn and share Anishinaabe traditions and language, and care for land and water.
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 http://sudbury.mediacoop.ca, make an account, and post it. If you'd prefer, instead of posting it yourself, you can email it to us at email@example.com 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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook.
