this is a bit off-topic, but I want to make sure that as many uk
imcistas know about this project as possible. If you think that a local
collective would be interested, or know of any individuals, please
some of you probably remember imc uk's "sam and annie", most known for
their article on imc uk in media development. It's on the newswire with
all the links, and also linked from our "about" section:
Now they have been asked write an article for an alternative media
handbook to be published by routledge. Kate Coyer, who is one of the
editors and also an imc radio person, asked for a hands-on case study on
the physical media centers during the G8 2005 in Scotland. The book is
aimed at undergraduates who they think are interested in alternative
media. It's once again a last minute request, the article should be
there by early february. But we have tons of brilliant material on the
wiki, so it shouldn't be a problem to put it together.
Here is a wiki with some more background and initial thoughts:
This is a call to participate for everybody who has a story to tell.
Because Sam and Annie can be everybody. You don't need to have been
physically in Scotland - you might have a story about "remote
participation" in a chatroom or in admin, updating the site. Also
interesting would be reports from "being indymedia" in the streets. Or
any stories related to the process of preparing the G8 IMC. Or stories
in general about "getting involved".
At the first knowledgelab, somebody said: "The so-called ‘Movement of
Movements’ is trying to offer counter narratives, in many different
forms". Imc is producing counter-narratives but it is also a
counter-narritive in itself...
This is also a call to help writing the actual article - if you have
ideas for particularly burning questions or issues that we want to pass
on to undergraduate students who are looking for involvement in
alternative media, if there is something that you think should be part
of the article etc.
Have a look at the wiki:
Any feedback welcome - on the wiki, on the list if you think it's
acceptable, or mail me privately, if you prefer. And please, forward
this if you think someone is interested...
