Media Works launch party April 29th

A media/labour project that has been in the works for several months is now ready to go, and there’s going to be a party to celebrate. The Media Works launch party is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at The Foundery (376 Bathurst St) in Toronto.

Media Works is a project sponsored by CWA-Canada in partnership with CUP and the NCRA. The project has been focused on the creation of a handbook that’s filled with advice for media workers about their rights and how to navigate the world of work as well as tips on how to do great labour reporting. There were also 14 labour reporting articles, audio documentaries and a graphic journalism piece commissioned as part of the project.

The launch event is free to attend and you can reserve your ticket at this Eventbrite page. Drinks and snacks will be served, and there will be a panel discussion with contributors to the handbook about the current state of media work and labour reporting. Copies of the Media Works Handbook itself will be available for free to event attendees.

You can see some of the articles at the Media Works website, or check out the event’s Facebook page for more information. Two Media Works pieces have been published right here on Story Board over the past few weeks: Zoe Melnyk’s post on the moral dilemma of unpaid internships and Sara Tatelman’s piece about the current state of internships at Canadian journalism schools.
