A huge thanks to those who joined us on Monday, May 7th for the interactive live-video-stream of our ReimagineCBC.ca public forum! We brought together seasoned professionals, up-and-coming CBC talent, outside experts, media innovators, and citizens in a celebratory event that added new energy to the CBC and helped to articulate a fresh vision for public media. Further details about the event can be found here.
Reimagine CBC is a collaborative brainstorming forum...
As digital technology is breaking old business models, it is also enabling new forms of participation in our culture, economy and governance. Perhaps most importantly, it’s connecting Canadians as never before. Public media organizations have a mandate to serve citizens, and this puts them in a unique position to add value and opportunity in this period of change.
The CBC is in the process of conducting a major strategic review both internally and through outside regulators. The question is, who will shape the CBC of the future? We think Canadians should. To add your idea to the forum,hit the “I have an Idea!” button on the right, or make a post on social media via Facebook or Twitter. And don't forget to vote for your favourite ideas below.
We'll be facilitating the discussion, bringing the best ideas to the CBC and engaging with decision-makers to turn your ideas into reality. Join a community of Canadians working to reimagine the CBC, and make it yours!
**PLEASE NOTE: This project is not officially affiliated with the CBC in any way, but we're optimistic our input will be valued and well received.
