WEBINAR: Outside Broadcasts

CBAA News, 23rd September 2014

Outside broadcasts provide a unique opportunity to promote your station directly to the community. 

Not only are they one of the most fun ways to engage with your local community, they can they raise your station's profile at all levels of operation and reach out to new volunteers, members, community groups, listeners and sponsors.
Even better, technological advancements mean that conducting an outside broadcast is cheaper and easier than ever before.
Join us as we examine what goes into running a successful live outside broadcast with a specific focus on outside broadcasts at live sporting events.

Stations with the scope and capacity to begin or refine their outside broadcast presence.

This article provides a critical examination of community media practices by young recently arrived African refugees and Cambodian young migrants in Western Sydney, Australia. Against the backdrop of contemporary cultural politics of migration in Australia the article is grounded on a recent participatory community media research project conducted in 2008-2009, which aimed to conceptualise the emerging spaces for claiming new forms of citizen agency and contest the general representations of newly arrived migrants in the mainstream media. The paper argues that community media is better positioned to recognise changing attitudes towards migrants and refugees, and that these changes must also take place from the bottom up. Extending existing notions of citizens’ media the paper articulates a view that young media practitioners become active citizens in the exercise of their civil and communication rights and their self-representation, by owning the process of content creation and communication, thus redefining the content (rather than the form) of what citizenship means in different social contexts.
