Proceedings of The Civics and Media Project: A report on the three workshops held in 2015 is now published. The booklet is intended to contribute to the national conversation about civics and media by documenting our thinking about the nature of the issue, our vision for the future and some pragmatic ideas to get there.

You can download the booklet on the McGuinness Institute publications page here or view below. The booklet will go to print early next week. The hard copy versions of the booklet will be available from our online store in May 2016.

Following that, several Civics and Media Project partners have been invited to present our findings at the World Journalism Education Congress in July. In addition, one of the ideas developed at during the workshop series, the idea of the media summit, will be pursued with media organisations, tertiary institutions, freelancers and key digital contributors, with a view to a mid-year meeting.
