Hi everyone, Apologies for writing in English. I hope someone can translate for me. I am interested in hearing your feedback on the idea of an accreditation scheme for community media - a bit like Fair Trade labeling but for broadcast and online community media. A group of us here in Australia have organised a symposium ito discuss the concept and logistics. We would like to trial it here and then see if it could go global. OURMedia could possibly be a key organisation in making it work by uniting various peak bodies etc. I have written a short article explaining the idea. It can be found at: http://www.creative.org.au/webboard/results.chtml?filename_num=224226 Ellie Dr Ellie Rennie Research Fellow Institute for Social Research ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation +61 3 9214 5303 0404 808 900 ----- Swinburne University of Technology CRICOS Provider Code: 00111D NOTICE This e-mail and any attachments are confidential and intended only for the use of the addressee.
