Working Design is proud to once again sponsor the expanded Media Democracy Days. For the first time, the 10th annual edition will run over three days from Nov. 11-13 at the Vancouver Public Library with other events taking place at nearby venues.

Panel discussions will include topics like unions and public opinion in a crisis economy, aboriginal uses of new media and the future of journalism.

The Sunday program will include hands-on media workshops.

Media Democracy Days’ mission is: Know the Media. Be the Media. Change the Media.
