Celebrating Women in Community Media – CMFE – March 2021 View in browserMarch 2021Celebrating Womenin Community MediaWhy is it that community media is such a powerful platform for women – our community, our stories, our development challenges and our celebrations? And why is it that women still – in most places – need to struggle to be well represented on air, in management and in the board rooms? And when successful: what is it having a voice generates of opportunities and change?These are some of the questions that we and the many women from community media all over Europe explore in this issue of the CMFE newsletter, celebrating women – womens struggles and women’s many victories.We can promise you that you will leave the reading feeling encouraged, stirred, upset and hopeful based on  the stories from around Europe: Poland, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, UK, Spain, Luxembourg and France/Syria,.We in CMFE look forward to receive your story of change, cooperation, and about how you make community media visible and struggle for legal recognition.In solidarity,Birgitte JallovCMFE PresidentCMFE NewslettersPast newslettersStrengthening an enabling environmentWomen creating safe space for womenNyimas Bantaba – a safe place for migrants and refugees(Photo: ALEX Berlin)In her programme at ALEX Berlin, Nyima Jadama wants to give migrants and refugees a safe place where they can voice their problems and get involved in society. But who is Nyima, and how was her show created?“Nyimas Bantaba” is a place for migration and women’s power: Nyima Jadama comes from the Gambia. She had only been in Germany for two and a half years when she applied for an integration traineeship at ALEX Berlin. At first, Niyma did not dare to take this step: “There were so many requirements,” she says. These included a residence permit, which she did not have at that time. That’s why Nyima was initially very worried about whether she would have a chance at all to get the training place. But she had one decisive advantage: Niyma had already worked in journalism before her traineeship, as she worked as a media educator and presenter in Freiburg at Radio Dreyeckland.It all started with the traineeshipIn the end, Nyima was able to prevail over the other applicants and complete her 18-month...

February 2021 Celebrating Radio in our Lives Photo: Sergio Santimano – for UNESCOAll over the world RADIO has been celebrated before, on and after February 13, World Radio Day. Stories of change, celebrating the role community radio can have in the lives of people in a distant rural village, in the lives of people living in a new community and country, having had to flee from prosecusion; people living with disabilities; or people marginalised for locally determined reasons – or sitting in a queue on your way to work in a busy city – radio is increasingly recognized as a core information provider.In Europe we have during the Covid-crisis – which has accentuated the urgency and power of COMMUNITY – seen how the community’s media – community media – have gained recognition for being exactly that: adding languages overnight when needed, and receiving that recognition and trust that few media have these days of mis- and disinformation.Lots of wonderful reasons to celebrate. And we have!Below you receive your invitation to the February 22 celebratory closure of the New Neighbours project, which we have documented in these columns over the past year; you will read about the adverse reality in Hungary, where community media apparently are so trusted and listened to that the authorities have now closed the last community radio with an FM license. We share experts’ take on what our digital rights will look like in 2030; and invite you to sign up for a video profile if you are a migrant in Europe between 18 and 25? And you can read about new research documenting the role of community media as platforms for peace in Cyprus – and much more!We in CMFE look forward to receive your story of change, cooperation, and about how you make community media visible and struggle for legal recognition.In solidarity,Birgitte JallovCMFE...

Urszula Doliwa, vice-president of CMFE, took part in the meeting between researchers and activists on community media in Barcelona organised after the IAMCR Conference in Madrid (July 16, 2019): The IAMCR Community Communication and Alternative Media Section and OURMedia network & RICCAP organised Pre-conference and Post-conference community media activities related to the IAMCR conference in Madrid “Communication, Technology, and Human Dignity: Disputed Rights, Contested Truths” (7 – 11 July 2019). The Section brings together research on community, alternative and citizens’ media, media activism, and other forms of civil society-based communication. Following the 2019 IAMCR conference in Madrid, it offered a series of visits to community media projects in four different regions of Spain: Madrid, Andalusia, Catalonia & the Basque Country. The visits aimed at providing a general portrait about the plurality of alternative media projects in Spain including promoters, organization and sustainability models, contents and programming, etc. A detailed programme of these events can be found here https://iamcr.org/madrid2019/community-communication-and-alternative-media-section-prepost-conference-events One of the activities planned was the meeting between researchers and activists on community media in Barcelona. The local organiser was the organisation dealing with community media training Teleduca http://teleduca.org. In this meeting 18 participants from the Barcelona region representing different community media outlets took part as well and 11 from other regions of Spain and from other countries: Mexico, Australia, Uruguay, Taiwan and UK. It was a chance to get knowledge about Catalan community media, which are very vibrant and diverse as well as to hear how the situation of CM looks like in other parts of the world. The participants discussed such issues as sustainability of CM, regulatory frameworks as well as gender balance in CM. In this meeting the Secretary of CMFE Urszula Doliwa took part. It was a chance to present the role of the Community Media Forum Europe, invite new members and encourage people gathered in Barcelona to take more active role in the work of the organisation. She also supported the discussion about the main problems of community media.Such meetings are a perfect platform for establishing new contacts between CM representatives, activists and researchers around the globe. We would like to congratulate the IAMCR Community Communication and Alternative Media Section and other organisers for this interesting initiative. Organisers of the events: IAMCR...
