Invitation to AMARC 10, the Tenth World Conference of Community Radio Broadcasters
8 to 13 November 2010, La Plata, Argentina
On behalf of the International Board of Directors of the World
Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), I am pleased to
invite you to join us for the 10th World Conference of Community Radio
Broadcasters. AMARC 10 will be held from 8 to 13 November 2010 in Ciudad
de la Plata, in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
AMARC 10 will be hosted by community radio members of AMARC Argentina
who have come together to welcome the first global conference of AMARC
to be held in South America, the region in which community radio was
born over 60 years ago. Argentina and the Latin America & Caribbean
region have been characterized by dynamic social change in recent years
and have much experience to share with our international movement.
AMARC 10 will bring together more than 400 community broadcasters and
stakeholders from over 100 countries in all regions of the world. It
will be a place to reflect on the growth of community media worldwide
and to respond, through international solidarity, to the challenges that
we continue to face in creating new forms of popular communication.
The AMARC10 conference will include, among other issues, sharing of good
practice in community media; advocacy to improve media policies, laws
and regulations; joint action through community media for social
justice, gender equity and a sustainable planet; knowledge sharing on
the use of new communication tools and technologies; strategies to
empower and support communities faced with conflict, emergency and disaster.
AMARC 10 will be an open and participatory event in which we come
together to share our ideas, knowledge and culture. We invite you to
contribute by proposing activities, presentations, workshops,
demonstrations and performances that can enrich our experience and
ensure our global gathering reflects the diversity of our movement.
