There is an idea to set up an Indymedia Collective in nottingham. Various people have been in contact with people from the Indymedia UK Collective and other local Indymedia groups across the country that are more than happy to help us setting up an Independent Media Centre (IMC) in Nottingham. Part of a local IMC could be a website, film showings, interactive workshops within our communities, fundraising events, parties, and a possible radio station!

So photographers, filmmakers, DJ’s, writers/reporters, musicians, artists, sound engineers, visual artist and people with technical skills; get involved!

The first meeting will be on the 18th of April at 7.30pm at the Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone St, Forest Fields, Nottingham, NG7 6HX, 0845 458 9595.

Indymedia is a collective of independent media organizations and hundreds of journalists offering grassroots, non-corporate coverage. Indymedia is a democratic media outlet for the creation of radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of truth.

Independent DIY media projects are spreading around the planet at unprecedented speed. Triggered by discontent with the mainstream media and supported by the widespread availability of media technologies, groups all over the world are creating their own channels of information and distribution in order to bypass the (mainstream) corporate media. The idea behind most of these projects is to create open platforms to which everyone can contribute – not only a small media elite with theirparticular interests. By eliminating the classic division between professional producers and passive audience, many issues and discussions that were previously suppressed become visible and available.
