We are the future - Community News Association ConferenceThe Community Media Conference 2018 presented by the Community Media Association (CMA) takes place on Saturday 15th September from 10am to 5pm at The Workstation in Sheffield, a leading business centre for creative talent and innovation. 

This year’s theme, We are the Future, is unique in that it is shaped and supported by a team of eight young people who are based in community media organisations around the UK. On the day we will be taking a look at how the next generation of media makers is building diverse, creative, and participatory media at a grassroots level. We will also be addressing the practicalities of involving young people in community broadcasting to build sustainable and thriving organisations for future generations.

Daniel Bruce, Internews Chief Executive, Europe, will be speaking on a panel with Lord Mayor Magid Magid.

Carolyn Powers, Internews Program Officer for Global Initiatives, will be speaking on two panels: Staying Sane in the Age of Misinformation and The Future of Radio.
