For the second time, Media and Communications staff and students partner up with Byline Media to attend Byline Festival of Independent Media held at the wonderful grounds of Pippingford Park in East Sussex. This year, Greenwich came with the two workshops led by Media and Communications Programme Leader Dr Maria Korolkova – on Digital Activism and Fashion and the Media. Both workshops are based on the new MA programme in Media and Creative Cultures which is due to start in October. Digital Activism and Fashion have become an important part of today’s media culture, hence are vital to new media education.
With great audiences, fantastic media and music line-ups and a bit of rain, that was a festival to remember!
