Independent Media Activist Jen Angel to speak on "Becoming the Media"

Friday August 8th
6pm for a lecture, discussion and workshop.
Black Rose Collective Bookstore & Community Resource Center
4038 N. Mississippi Avenue Portland, OR 97227

Come to a lecture, discussion and workshop with independent media activist Jen Angel, who has recently written a pamphlet on PM Press titled "Becoming
the Media: a critical history of Clamor Magazine". Jen will speak to both
her experiences in running a national magazine as well as the current state
of independent media.

Jen Angel will address the current independent media environment,
opportunities and challenges, and to her experiences in independent media and as the co-editor of Clamor Magazine. Clamor was a movement publication that existed between 2000 and 2006, covering radical politics, culture, and
activism. Clamor published 38 issues and featured over 1,000 different writers and artists.

Angel's analysis in "Becoming the Media" is presented as a case study on how movement projects and organizations deal with vital but rarely discussed issues such as management, sustainability, ownership, structure, finance,
decision making, power, diversity, and vision. Additionally, Angel is a contributor to the recent online publication "In the Middle of a Whirlwind" - www.inthemiddleofawhirlwind.info - and her article therein speaks to many of the issues facing independent media today.
