Forgive my clogging up your in-boxes, but the following two postings received
recently from the great cyber-Void may be of interest (the Saur/Bowker listing
is particularly interesting).

Cheers, all!

VIDEAZIMUT GENERAL ASSEMBLY

__________________________

INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR "Media for Citizenship in the Electronic Age:
Community Television and New Technologies"

__________________________

VideOlympiade Screenings

Sao Paulo, Brazil July 3 to 6, 1996

The General Assembly of members of Videazimut will be held in
Brazil in July. Videazimut membership has grown substantially in
the last two years so the general assembly of members will be an
important opportunity to discuss and decide the future directions
and activities of the coalition. Among the topics on the agenda
will be the establishment of new priorities for the coming years,
regional plans and activities, and the election of the Board of
Directors. The assembly is open to friends and allies of
Videazimut as well as members. Non-members will have a voice but
no vote.

The assembly will be preceded by an International Seminar on Media
for Citizenship in the Electronic Age: Community Television and
New Technologies. Agenda topics will include the relationship
between the media and the building of citizenship, the future of
community television and the impact of new technologies. The
premier screening of the videos selected for the 1996
VideOlympiade Celebrating Local TV and Video Creation will take
place at the same time.

This gathering is an opportunity for you to meet and discuss with
participants in the world-wide movement for audiovisual
communication for development and democracy including
organizations specialising in communication for development,
community media centres, independent producers, analysts and
practitioners. This meeting will provide us with time to get to
know each other and our work in the tranquillity of a beautiful
site in a hilly rural area not far from Sao Paulo and, we'll have
lots of videos to screen.

WHEN? July 3 to 6, 1996

WHERE? The adult education centre of Instituto Cajamar located
about 45 km from Sao Paulo just under the imaginary line on the
map known as the Tropic of Capricorn.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO PARTICIPATE? The cost to stay one week
at the site is about US$200 including registration, room and
meals. Further details will be provided upon request.

Your early reply to the Videazimut Secretariat on the attached
form concerning your participation will be appreciated. If you
would like to become a member prior to the assembly, the
Secretariat will be pleased to assist you.
