Call for Proposals
The Centre for Social and Creative Media at the University of Goroka is pleased to host the tenth OURMedia conference from 21-25 July 2014.
OURMedia10 in Papua New Guinea is a unique opportunity to bring the OURMedia network to the most diverse and largest country of the South Pacific Islands. It provides a platform for the South Pacific region to contribute to global discussions around community media and communication for social change while strengthening dialogue across regions. The recent impact of new media technologies in the region provides new opportunities and contexts to discuss the role media can play for individuals and communities.
We invite presentations, workshops, papers, roundtable discussions and panel proposals relating to concepts of media practice, presenting case studies of media initiatives both from the region and internationally and providinganalysis of recent developments, challenges and successes in the areas of communication and social change. We welcome proposals for exhibitions, filmscreenings or performances.
As part of the conference field trips to visit community organizations and groups will be organized where participants will get an insight into local initiatives and projects.

Suggested conference themes for OURMedia10 include:
   Communication research with a focus on Indigenous approaches
   Transnational connections, distribution and exhibition networks
   Media technologies and innovation including mobile phones and social media
   Communication for Development (C4D) with content areas such as climate change and environment, health and gender
   Media policy, regulation and freedom of expression
   Media training and education
   Social movements, participation and social change
