Media Literacy Networking Session
Imagine being given an interesting book, but you’ve only 10 minutes to read it. You can’t read the whole book, but you’ve time to read at least one chapter. Why not?
Now replace the book with a person!
That’s what the networking session on the Media Meets Literacy conference in Sarajevo is going to be like.
The session will mix the “living library” format with a kind of “speed dating”. Yes, that's correct! We will help participants to match with experts and practitioners working in the media literacy field all over Europe.
Out of the 250 guests at our conference, we selected 45 people who would sit at a table, ready to share their unique stories, tools and experiences with you.
When the session starts, participants would go to tables selected by them and would all have 15 minutes to chat and discuss. After 15 minutes, participants change tables. In all you will do this three times. Our master of ceremonies will be there to walk everyone through the process and ensure it runs smoothly.
The purpose of this session is not to try to enable everyone to discover everything about everybody. It is, rather, to create energy and space so that participants can get to know a little about people and work that interest them, and exchange key ideas, important stories and ... visiting cards!
We think this “speed dating” – the matching of interests between experts/practitioners and conference participants – will be both enjoyable and valuable.
