The Norwich Radical was proud to host War of Words, its Progressive Media Conference, for the second year running on March 4th 2017.
Our media is dominated by right wing voices, from Tory tabloids to Blairite broadsheets. Big business holds huge sway in broadcast, print and online journalism. It perpetuates the reactionary messages we hear and receive, making it complicit in the rise of a louder, powerful, regressive, conservative movement across the globe.
But we have the power to take the media into our own hands, reporting on the issues that affect us, and purporting progressive politics. People all across the world are doing just that – not only through social media, but also through newspapers, magazines, music, film, art and more.
After a successful crowdfunder the event was free to attend. Check out our website here for more information and scroll down here for some videos and photographs.
