Public & community media

In a media world dominated by big commercial corporations such as Time Warner, Sony or News International it is important that alternative perspectives are available. Public broadcasting performs a crucial role in many countries in serving publics in their capacity as
citizens and not just as consumers and in ensuring that there is a public forum in the media and not just a marketplace.

At a local level, community media help ensure that a range of communities, groups and individuals are able to express and promote their concerns and cultures.

SIGNIS members are active in both public and community media and in working to ensure that the voices of the voiceless and the faces of the faceless are both heard and seen in the media.
