World Cafe on the Future of Community Media
Access Humboldt

Come to the Authors Hall, Library 2nd Floor on Wednesday, October 3 from 4-5:30pm to have a conversation about community media, local news, and information.

What is the future of Community Media?

This World Cafe conversation seeks a better understanding of your interest in community information and use of media outlets. Where do you find local information or news? What is the impact of social media and news syndication on local news? What role do you have in local information; reader, listener, viewer or writer, videographer, community journalist?

Access Humboldt, a non-profit community media organization serving Humboldt County has initiated a strategic planning process that includes a community needs assessment, and the HSU Library planning process is similarly interested in this discussion because it informs our information literacy, digital literacy, and L4HSU educational programming.
