The COMMUNITY VOICES conference will bring together
regional organisations, independent practitioners and the
MISA membership in order to strengthen ties and make an
action plan for the establishment and support of independent
electronic and community media in the region. The conference
will also concretize plans for the eastern & southern African
network for community media and lay the groundwork for the
establishment of the southern African network for independent
and democratic television and video practitioners.
