THE VERY SAME NIGHT from another Rising Tider:
"Becoming the Media: A Critical History of Clamor Magazine."
Thursday, March 19, 2009, 7 p.m.
Reading Frenzy, 921 SW Oak, Portland
Join us this evening for a chat with activist and author, Jen Angel, who will discuss her experience as the publisher of Clamor Magazine, and her pamphlet, "Becoming the Media: A Critical History of Clamor Magazine." Following her presentation there will be a panel of speakers, including Justin Hocking from the IPRC, involved in progressive/radical media related projects discuss their own growing pains and steps toward sustainability.
Clamor Magazine 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.
This analysis 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.
Jen Angel has been a writer and media activist for over 15 years. Jen's publishing history includes Clamor, publishing the Zine Yearbook, and editing MaximumRockNRoll. She is a founding board member of Allied Media Projects, a non-profit independent media advocacy organization and a contributing editor to Yes! Magazine. Since leaving Clamor, she has worked as a producer for KPFA Radio, and a publicist and tour manager through the cooperative booking agency, Aid & Abet.
