Activists, civil society workers and representatives of different communities in Cyprus began a workshop on media literacy on Thursday on how to make their voices heard.
The Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC), in collaboration with the United States Embassy in Cyprus, is hosting the ‘Emerging Voices’ workshop, until Saturday, with two internationally acclaimed trainers Paul Michailides and Moses Shumow
The workshop will give the opportunity to over 20 participants to discuss and work collectively on media literacy issues and techniques, creating and executing action plans, strategies and publishing, and also learning about relevant tools for community engagement.
The workshop will be conducted by Paul Michailides, Director of the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change and Moses Shumow, Assistant Professor in the Department of Journalism and Broadcasting at Florida International University.
“CCMC has been working on creating a media literacy society in Cyprus since 2009,” said Larry Fergeson, General Manager of CCMC. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with the US Embassy in order to bring international expertise in this field of work to Cyprus,” added Fergeson.
