Rising Voices is pleased to be partnering with CIS and HIVOS to organize the third regional workshop for the "Digital Natives with a Cause?' project to take place in Santiago, Chile on February 8-10, 2011. We are now accepting applications for participants from Latin America and the Caribbean. Deadline is January 4, 2011.
Through our new community survey, we would like to ask our readers what resources from Rising Voices that you have found especially helpful and what else you would like to see incorporated. We invite you to complete this short survey to help us better understand the needs of our community.
Blogger Sara Abd Al-Maktari started as a participant in the first workshops offered by Rising Voices grantee Empowerment of Women Activists in Media Techniques (EWMAT) in Yemen. Since then, she has volunteered to lead another round of workshops to teach women about the use of citizen media.
Citizen media continues to play a role in reducing stigma and bringing personal stories of those affected by HIV/AIDS to a wider audience. To commemorate World AIDS Day 2010, Rising Voices is sponsoring a live chat on December 2 to examine how we as a community can continue to support those initiatives that use these digital tools.
