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.
