From our partners at WAM!:
What could happen in your community when local media makers, activists, journalists, artists, academics, and more come together to fight for gender justice in the media? Discover what’s possible by participating in WAM! It Yourself from March 21 — April 1.
During WAM! It Yourself (WIY), folks across the continent come together to meet, plan, build, and organize for gender justice in the media. Think of it like a decentralized conference where the sessions that are relevant to your community take place in your own neighborhood. You’ll have that same after-conference buzz of motivation and inspiration that gets you fired up about the future — and the best part is that you can put it to use right away, because you’re home.
We need you to help us make 2016 the biggest WAM! It Yourself yet! Nobody knows your community better than you do, so we’re standing by to help you bring your ideas for a WIY event to life. Movie screenings, workshops, panel discussions, salary negotiation trainings, pitch sessions, open-mics, book clubs, poetry readings, and happy hours are just a few of the events we’ve held in the past, but the sky’s the limit!
Rest assured that you’ll have support from the team at WAM!Central. We are nothing without our rockstar local leaders that make our grassroots dreams possible! Still got questions? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
