Thanks for making our second annual conference a success! On March 31, 2012, 100 media makers and activists gathered at Vancouver’s Center for Peace to discuss how media makers and activists can work together to improve coverage of social movements. Panelists and participants analyzed coverage of the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street and SlutWalk. Participants also discussed “7 Habits of Highly Effective Feminists” and learned about how artists and art can help promote social movements.

Read Sandra Cuffe’s recap of the conference at Vancouver Media Co-op, and check out the live-tweet commentary on Twitter at #wamvan (tweets collated on the PDF).
