New Update from the Twitterverse.

It has been a few months since the last Twitter update, but many fantastic things have been happening around the world with community uses of co-creative media.

Upcoming conferences include the 5th International Digital Storytelling Conference in Ankara, Turkey from the 8-10th May.  This is a large conference with a diverse array of digital storytelling research, exhibitions and displays. Click here to subscribe to the Twitter list for that conference.

Another international event coming up soon is the 8th Digital Storytelling Festival to be held in Wales on the 14th June.

Also, there is the interesting Laundromat Project tweeted by researcher, designer, artist and educator Pip Shea.  Also, check out Pip’s free downloadable PDF booklets.

There is some really interesting research on Video4Change, and links to this work have been tweeted by researcher Dr. Tanya Notley. Definitely a link worth checking out. This is in addition to many great links from Witness, who are celebrating 20 years. The Human Rights Channel has also been nominated for a Webby.

Also worthwhile reading are the regular blog posts from the MIT Center for Civic Media, that has included blog posts about Engage Media and their work.

March saw a lot of tweeting from the Australian Arts community in relation to Creative Australia, the Australian Government’s 2013 national cultural policy. This is in addition to the future of digital radio, and government funding in the community broadcasting sector, that was also making an impact on Twitter that month. This campaign is ongoing. Make sure to visit the “Commit to Community Radio” page for further information.

These are just a few of the many things that have been happening around the world. Please make sure to keep following the @ozccmorg Twitter feed for regular updates.
