AMARC Europe Conference and General Assembly in Halle, Germany

hallegaCommunity Radio. A Voice and Tool for Solidarity

The next conference of AMARC Europe is approaching. It will take place in Halle, Germany, 24-26 October 2016, coinciding with the Radio Art Festival and German Federation BFR meeting. Alongside the Conference, the new AMARC Europe Board will be elected and the organisation strategic plan will be designed. We want and need your input!

The conference draws its theme – Community Radio. A Voice and Tool for Solidarity – from the fact that now more than ever the community radio movement needs to voice solidarity, human rights and social justice in support of those who want to come to – and are already in – Europe in search of safety and a better life. It is our responsibility to create a new social discourse, that should challenge the political and media discourse of fear, stereotype and dehumanisation.

Today, more than ever, Community radios need to go back to the basis and become a tool of integration, interculturalism and solidarity.
