Community Television for Concord and Carlisle

A Great example of Community Media.

 

What do we mean by "Community Media"?  We mean media created not just for a community, but by the members of that community, who take part not only to inform but to also create a dialogue that speaks to the interests and concerns of the locale.

The Internet is filled with many real as well as electronic communities. The voices of the real communities work alongside, but often fight to be heard, amongst the electronic ones, who also create media. Millions of pages, posts, links and messages are sent by these electronic communities, often sent with a goal of reaching as far as the Internet can take them. This is why content that actually matters in a localized way often gets lost in the shuffle.

This is why Concord Magazine, a blog published by Concordian Debbie Bier, is a breath of fresh air. If you haven't already found it from the ConcordMA.com website, you'll find a lot to like in the wide variety of content Debbie writes about.

Content about upcoming events, photo's by our zip codes best photographers, and articles in the vernacular of our town speaking to what people care about. an added bonus is the simple blue design scheme of the blog, which allows viewers to work through the content (often updated several times a week) with very little distraction. Check out Concord Magazine here.

 

 

Living in Nanae: Reports from Concord's sister city.

Concord is home to one of the richest and most cultivated sister city relationships in the region. Concord's sister city Nanae is located in the Japanese state of Hokaido, which is the northernmost island.

Since 1998 Concord has sent a single resident to act as Coordinator of International Relations. Since 2008 this resident has been Concordian and CCTV friend Bobby Kargula.

 

Bobby visited the studio last week and brought 8 highschool students from Nanae with him.

  

The students sat down for a formal interview show where they discussed the unique, immersive experience of attending an American high school. watch Adventures in Global Citizenship on demand under category 'CCHS Stuff'

CCTV & The CCHS Urban Art Club Team Up!

CCHS’s Urban Art Club has long practiced the ancient art of graffitti just outside the doors of CCTV’s studio, while those working inside were often at a loss of words on how to direct someone en route to the station, exactly how to get to our little space nestled around back (actually not exactly around the back… well, it’s complicated.)
