Journalism workshop in BTAC area

2 workshops on "Citizens as Journalists & the power of New Media" at Udalguri and Kokrajhar on August 23-25 and August 28-30 respectively are being organised by Assam Times Foundation in association with All Bodo Students Union.

The journey of journalism began with pamphlets. But gone are the days. The advancement of science and technology has brought a sea change in the entire realm. The proliferation of media in the biggest ever democracy on this planet hardly finds any echo of public voice. Northeast India is sandwiched in between simmering armed conflict and conspicuous ignorance by those in the distant Delhities where media is a booming business these days. 

But it has some dark aspects. Politically motivated news seems to have been teeming with some corners of the entire sector, at times, raising doubts over the sanctity and sincerity of a section of media people. Prevalent technology empowers youth-citizens to practice journalism, represent it and bolster social-political change by setting regional and local agendas for the otherwise ailing perceived mainstream.

With the above as backgrounder the Assam Times Foundation (ATF) intends to conduct a workshop on Citizens as Journalists & the power of New Media.

Interested persons are requested to contact the organizers or local ABSU offices at Udalguri and Kokrajhar
