[Denver] April 5-7, 2013: National Conference For Media Reform Brings Together Media, Tech, Policy & Arts

shockleestorypic_NCFMR2013On April 5, the National Conference for Media Reform — the nation’s biggest conference devoted to media, technology and democracy – will kick off in Denver. Thousands of activists, media makers, journalists, policymakers, technologists and artists will travel to the Mile High City for three days of inspiring speeches, performances — and 60 sessions featuring more than 350 presenters.

This very cool three-day event hosted by Free Press explores topics including internet freedom, technology and innovation; culture and media making; and social justice and the fight for media equality. The focus is how to change the media and build a better democracy.

Check out our own Hank Shocklee on the panel, Freedom Isn’t Free: What Policymakers and Creators Need to Know on Friday April 5th and later that night for a special DJ set at the Shake Your Media Maker Party at the McNichols Building alongside musical guests including Denver musicians Shawn King of DeVotchKa, Jonny 5 and Brer Rabbit of the Flobots, and Kitty Crimes.

The conference will also include a film festival featuring Sundance winners Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry and Middle of Nowhere, book signings and a dynamic public square with art galleries, poetry readings, a tech and media playground — even an old-school soapbox.
