Media Democracy Day is an annual event dedicated to bringing people and media together to promote positive change by “questioning dominant message structures, promoting citizen engagement in practices of production, and parlaying both into progressive social change and key action items.”

For 2011, they are sponsoring three days of activities and events at Pacific Cinematheque, Vancouver Public Library and SFU Woodwards to discuss the state and role of Canada’s Media system. You can register for Friday and Saturday events here, and the Sunday workshops here. All the events are free and open to the public.
