MULTICULTURAL MEDIA AT A CROSSROADS - A one day Conference on 25 Feb at the NSW Parliament House

The ethnic media play critical roles in Australia democracy: this conference explores these roles and the challenges the ethnic media face in the light of converging digital technologies,and a mainstream media that too often ignores the realities of our multicultural communities. Increasingly ethnic communities are helping the determine the outcome of elections. Key issues include racism, ageing populations, new generations of web savvy media consumers, global communities that communicate across the world, and the difficult borderland between mainstream and ethnic media. Yet the ethnic media sit now at a critical crossroads - what is their future and how will they survive?

Who should attend?

Ethnic and mainstream media journalists who need to know about changing audiences and new ways of communicating with them.
Government organisations and NGOs who need to understand the media in order to get their messages through to multicultural Australia.
Ethnic and Indigenous communities who want to see the survival of a viable community media.
Advertising communication and PR agencies who want to understand how the changing face of Australia offers opportunities and justifies attention.
Students in media and social sciences who want to understand the global world in the local space, and the challenges the media face in bringing messages to diverse communities.
Politicians and political advisers who need to know how the landscape of political preferences are shifting and what the role of ethnic media may be in helping shape them.
