[creative-radio] Fwd: Searching for people to lead dialogue on the use of radio

New Tactics has run some very interesting dialogues in the human rights/technology space, but I think this dialogue will need solid participation/framing from the media development community (including working radio journalists in the South!) in particular to contribute more contemporary perspectives on the relationship between media, journalism and civil society.

Regards, Sameer

> Hi all,
> Greetings from New Tactics! Hope you are doing well.
> I am writing to you to see if you or any of your colleagues would be interested in helping to lead our upcoming dialogue on 'Using Radio to Empower and Engage Communities' from May 26 – June 1, 2010.
> As you know, human rights groups are finding new ways to reach their audience through radio and audio work. This dialogue will bring together human rights practitioners using community radio to empower communities, shortwave radio to reach communities limited by government-run media and radio stations, and other innovative uses of audio to share critical information. This tactical dialogue is a space for those working with and interested in using community / shortwave radio and other forms of audio to share their stories, challenges, resources and ideas.
> The New Tactics on-line discussions are not conducted in "real time" but over a 7-day period allowing for world-wide participation. We understand how busy you are as well as the others we are seeking to reach and engage in the dialogue. Our growing New Tactics on-line community has over 2,500 members from over 120 countries. We have conducted 25 dialogues to date on a wide range of topics since September 2007 when we launched our Web 2.0 site ( Our most recent on-line dialogue, Tactics That Tickle: Laughing All the Way to the Win focused on the use of humor.
> Please let me know if you are interested!
> Thanks!
