Indigenous Communication in the Digital World: Economic Realities and Challenges
Indigenous Communication in the Digital World: Economic
Realities and Challenges
What explains the unprecedented growth of Aboriginal media in Canada and what shape will it take in the future as the digital world continues to evolve? These questions and more will be considered at a panel discussion on March 23, 2016, hosted by the University of Winnipeg, and the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), with generous support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Two expert panels will discuss the current Aboriginal media landscape, the exciting future for Aboriginal media that lies ahead, and the role both play in bridging economic and cultural divides in an era of reconciliation.
