Oxford Media Convention 2010

Oxford Media Convention 2 Date: 31 Dec, 2010

In the public interest? Plotting the future of Britain's Creative Industries

Organised by ippr in partnership with MediaGuardian

Thursday January 21 2010, University of Oxford

Now in its eighth year, this is a must-attend event for anyone working in media policy, strategy and regulation. Setting the tone for media policy debate in 2010, the convention will ask what future faces the creative industries? Where should public funding be directed? And are citizens still masters of the media or is it time for a new media ethic?

Leading contributors from organisations including:

DCMS, Facebook, Ofcom, Trinity Mirror Group, Channel4, Google and the BBC.
