Help determine the future of community media in Saint Paul
The Saint Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN) is St. Paul’s community media center. Our mission is to empower people to use media and communications to better lives, use authentic voice and build common understanding. SPNN has grown into a recognized leader in the community media movement.
We are holding a series of workshops on the future of cable service, community media and technology. The focus group workshops will be conducted by The Buske Group, a nationally recognized public policy consulting firm hired specifically to help identify community needs and interests. Bring your ideas and learn about the opportunities we have right now for Saint Paul to provide new technological resources for our communities.
- Access to media service for everyone -- regardless of economic situation.
- Updated and improved media production facilities for use by schools, youth, community and neighborhood groups … by you!
- Classes for youth and adults in using media and TV.
- Distance learning and telecommunications.
- New ways of creating, using and distributing media for our educational community.
- Local media by, for and about the people of Saint Paul: whatever the issues, whatever the celebration, whatever the need.
The future of media and technology is NOW.
