“Crash Course on Media Literacy”

with the Northwest Media Literacy Center.

The Crash Course is a fun, lively, hands-on,

interactive experience in media literacy. In an informal,

small group environment, participants have

the opportunity to examine their own relationship

to media, to share what effect it has on their lives,

and to gain tools of critical thinking that may challenge

existing perceptions of media.

This half-day course focuses on how to deconstruct

advertising and media, the engine driving the

media machine, and to read the messages. Training

includes experiential problem solving, thoughtful

discussion, and intellectual analysis of broadcast

news, television programs, pop music, Internet,

magazines, and movies. How are images constructed?

How does this construct shape perception,

build desire and/or discontent, and develop stimulus

addiction, the need to have more media hits.

We address violence, body image and health issues,

over consumption and environmental issues, globalization,

corporate invasion of the schools, sexuality,

brain development, creativity, and addiction. The

goal of media literacy is to empower ourselves so

that we convert a passive relationship with media

into an active and imaginative reclaiming of our

stories and our personal culture.

Ideal for teachers, parents, students, community

leaders and religious educators. Register for 3 hour

workshop offered 10/10 from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm

and 10/11 from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Cost: sliding

scale $15 to $25.

“How Media Really Work and How to Work the

Media”

with Paul Richards, who draws from 35 years’

experience as a reporter, editor, columnist, broadcaster,

advocate and specializes in public interest

advocacy and “free media” strategies for nonprofit

organizations.

Do you believe the facts speak for themselves?

Sorry. Public interest advocates, environmental and

sustainable agriculture groups, libraries, museums,

universities, and First Nations/Native Americans

need inside information on how media really work.

Since they can’t afford the six- and seven-figure

salaries reaped by corporate media consultants, propublic

viewpoints are often omitted or under-represented.

In today’s short-staffed newsrooms,

“reporters” no longer have time to report. Actual

reporting gets lost amidst software snafus, demoralizing

pay and benefit cuts, management’s relentlessly

shrinking “news hole” (news-to-advertising ratio),

and corporate owners’ growing infatuation with

inoffensive “McNews.” You can be darn sure your

reporter is getting professional releases from the

resource-extraction industries. Make her/his job

easier!

This workshop helps you balance the scales.

Ideal for activists and advocates. Pre-register for 6

hr. workshop offered 10/11: 9:00 am to 12 pm &

1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Cost: sliding scale $30 to $45.

CONFERENCE MISSION

The “Peace Justice and Media Conference and

Festival” is the 3rd in a series of annual conferences

in response to 9/11. It is intended to inform and

empower the general public, advocates and activists

to lobby and reform the mainstream media to gain

more fairness, accuracy and diversity of voices. We

also want to build and strengthen the progressive

movement in general and the independent alternative

media in particular. Because of the media

focus, we’re reaching out to progressive organizations

on a wide variety of issues throughout the

region to sponsor, promote, present and attend

workshops.
