Empowerment Radio & the Magic of Community

Start der Web­i­nar-Rei­he Empower­ment Media am 18. März 2021

Unter dem Titel „Empower­ment Media“ ver­an­stal­tet COMMIT 2021 eine Online-Rei­he zu den The­men Geschlech­ter­ge­rech­tig­keit, Medi­en und Diver­si­tät. In der ers­ten Aus­ga­be wird uns Bir­git­te Jal­l­ov (Prä­si­den­tin des Com­mu­ni­ty Forum Euro­pe) von ihren eige­nen Pro­jek­ten und der Rol­le von Empower­ment in Com­mu­ni­ty Medi­en erzäh­len. Die Ver­an­stal­tung fin­det in eng­li­scher Spra­che statt.

Why is com­mu­ni­ty radio, com­mu­ni­ty media, so spe­cial? What is it that makes hundreds, thou­sands of us in Euro­pe – and around the world – con­ti­nue to let our com­mu­ni­ty radio/media enga­ge­ment be so important in our lives? What is it that gives that spe­cial com­mu­ni­ty radio ‘magic’?

Based in a life­time working in, with and for com­mu­ni­ty radio around the world, Bir­git­te takes us with her through the many small, yet signi­fi­cant steps, that turn com­mu­ni­ty radio/media into plat­forms that in many parts of the world have made tra­di­tio­nal­ly unhe­ard – voice­l­ess and mar­gi­na­li­sed – com­mu­ni­ties in a posi­ti­on to, tog­e­ther, work for bet­ter lives for all.

If it isn’t magic, what is it then? And why radio? And why is it that it is so com­pli­ca­ted in many places for women to play their role – and when they do, when they final­ly mana­ge to get their space, they gene­ra­te real com­mu­ni­ty chan­ge? We will explo­re this and a lot more.

Bir­git­te is pre­sent­ly the Pre­si­dent of Com­mu­ni­ty Media Forum Euro­pe (CMFE) and has enjoy­ed brin­ging her expe­ri­ence from Afri­ca, Asia and the Midd­le East with her back to Euro­pe, whe­re she finds that com­mu­ni­ty radio plays much the same role as ever­y­whe­re else. COMMIT has with CMFE and part­ners pro­du­ced powerful docu­men­ta­ti­on of exact­ly that, which Bir­git­te will also brief­ly refer to, while she will also pick up on why and how it is that the tra­gic Covid cri­sis has been in a posi­ti­on to – like a magni­fy­ing glass – show the power of com­mu­ni­ty in com­mu­ni­ty media.

And with your good ques­ti­ons, we will be able to cover even more ground!

Bir­git­te Jal­l­ov (Pre­si­dent CMFE): Foun­der of EMPOWERHOUSE and a life-long advo­ca­te of people’s right to found, defi­ne, mana­ge, own and fill their own media, Bir­git­te has sin­ce the ear­ly 80s been acti­ve in and around com­mu­ni­ty media as a broad­cas­ter, a mana­ger, a mid­wi­fe, a trai­ner, a donor, an advo­ca­te, an eva­lua­tor and an acti­vist in many count­ries in espe­ci­al­ly Euro­pe, North Ame­ri­ca and Afri­ca. Bir­git­te co-foun­ded Denmark’s first women’s radio in Denmark’s first com­mu­ni­ty radio kick­start­ing a 3‑year peri­od of expe­ri­ments with com­mu­ni­ty radio and local TV back in 1983 – inspi­ring deba­te while chal­len­ging tho­se tra­di­tio­nal­ly set­ting the agen­da. A long-time mem­ber of AMARC’s Women’s Inter­na­tio­nal Net­work (WIN), Bir­git­te never mis­ses a chan­ce to work to secu­re women’s enga­ge­ment on all levels and in all are­as of the media and was until recent­ly among others on the board of the Inter­na­tio­nal Asso­cia­ti­on of Women in the Media (IAWRT). Bir­git­te ope­ra­tes within a vast inter­na­tio­nal net­work and was among others the mana­ger of UNESCO’s to date big­gest natio­nal media deve­lo­p­ment pro­gram­me for a 6‑year peri­od in Mozam­bi­que. Birgitte’s com­mu­ni­ty media book: “EMPOWERMENT RADIO – Voices buil­ding a com­mu­ni­ty” is now available as a free e‑reader. Reviews high­light the book’s focus: “If you want to read only one book on sus­taina­bi­li­ty of com­mu­ni­ty radio, this is the one to read!”
