Workshop / Imagining a Fairer Media in a 'Fictional' Town
I facilitated a workshop to collaborate on ideas for what a fairer media might look like. Above are some of the slides from the workshop (it had to be done virtually).
To enable the discussion, I created a fictional town with characters that my particpants could discuss ideas through the lens of.
I walked them through a number of different scenarios to come up with ideas on: how to fund a locally-owned media, how to report on stories, and how to publish these stories.
We also discussed what some of the future impacts these decisions might have.
The town, characters and scenarios were all created based on the research I'd done so far, so although fictional they're also probable.
This workshop enabled me to include more voices than just my own and to come up with ideas outside of my own biases.
