CCMC Mix Event invitation

What happens when you get 40 community activists and civil society members and put them in a room with 20 media makers who are experts in video, photography, web design, motion graphics and audio? Well, it was a match made in heaven at the Cyprus Community Media Centre’s (CCMC) event on 19 March.

CCMC held the evening event as an opportunity for all its members to meet with CCMC’s specialist media consultants in order to plan future productions for their organizations. The format was almost like speed dating – with each consultant assigned to a specific table setting. CCMC members spent some time talking their ideas through until the bell rang and they changed positions, giving everyone the opportunity to talk.


CCMC members were able to discuss their ideas for future videos and other communications support they require from CCMC. In turn, CCMC consultants were able to impart their advice and support regarding the feasibility of each idea. Ultimately, it gave grassroots organizations the chance to hear direct from communications specialists who can work with CCMC to tell the stories that need to be told. “We know our members are doing great work and our job is to communicate that to a wider audience,” said Beran Djemal from CCMC. “The CCMC Mix event was designed to help us do just that.”
