Dragomir on Citizen Participation in the Media
The link between media funding and citizen participation is one of the key elements in the transformation of today's journalism, our Director, Marius Dragomir writes in his article published in Quaderns del CAC, the journal of the Consell de l'Audiovisual de Catalunya (Catalan Audiovisual Council, CAC).
The article, entitled Votar amb la cartera: el significat real de la participació ciutadana als mitjans de comunicació (Voting with the Wallet: The Real Significance of Citizen Participation in Media), focuses on the changes in funding journalism, and raises the question whether citizen-funded media can be the most suitable model for news organizations that aspire to practice more independently.
The journal’s 46th issue is devoted to participation, citizenship and communication, and is available online in Catalan. The Spanish and English versions are expected to be published in September.
