10:10 AM- Session I: Representing Diversity in Community Media
The past few years has seen an increase in discussion over diversity in media. Are the stories being told in your community being accurately represented? Media helps construct the perception in which we live, what happens when media omits or distorts a whole group of people? In this session we explore race, gender and other social issues and how we can better represent diversity.

11:30 AM- Session II: Where to Find Grants and Grant Writing Techniques
Cable cord cutting is one of the biggest scares community media centers have when it comes to sustaining funds to keep centers operational. There are several ways funds can be raised to contribute financially for organizations but what grants? First, how do you find them and second, how to write it? This session will help media centers learn grant writing techniques and navigate through finding sources of revenue.

2:30 PM- Session III: Engage Your Audience Through Social Storytelling
The social world is becoming ever more present in our everyday lives. Stories are at our finger tips, we no longer have to wait for the 6 O’Clock News or wait for a monthly subscription to come out; it’s instantaneous. In this session we will learn how to engage our community members with sharing their story. Not everyone uses media in the same manner, nor is captured by it. By using mixed media, you’re reaching a more diverse and wider audience who will help tell their story. With cable cord cutting become ever more relevant, it is now more important than ever to capture your audience through social.
