Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE) is inviting applications for the third media literacy workshop part of the Media Against Hate campaign. The workshop will take place at Kampnagel Internationale Kulturfabrik, Hamburg, Germany from November 23rd to 25th in conjunction with the Conference on Media and Migration Awareness.

The workshop will address the following topics:

  • Empowerment and protection of women journalists and media makers (round table)
  • Creating hate-free media environments for young people – platforms and literacy skills (training)
  • The role of media in fostering inclusion and combating racial intolerance (conference)

Applications are open to community media practitioners, journalists, journalism schools and trainers, civil society organisations from EU countries. Those interested in participating at the workshop should contact mediaagainsthate(at)cmfe(dot)eu for further information on how to apply. The deadline for submitting applications is end of 15 September 2017. Travel and accomodation costs will be covered by the organisers.

The workshop is the last of a series of three media literacy workshops organised as part of the ‘Media Against Hate Speech’ campaign with the aim of supporting:

– Mutual learning and cooperation activities as instruments for sharing concrete best practices transferable to different legal contexts, that are likely to increase efficient prevention of discrimination/hate speech

– Development of counter-narratives through multilingual programs / campaigns fighting stereotypes and populism, taking creative examples from a local/small scale to a broader context
