Media has always played an integral role in shaping perspectives and building insights that build the nation, and time has been testament to how it stood by its people throughout history. Now, with the challenge of communication amidst rampant misinformation outlets and a global pandemic, how will it find its way through its mandated purpose?
Persistent in pursuing relevance and competence in the media industry, UP Radio Circle (UPRC) comes back rising above the online tide with its annual student journalism workshop, ELEVATE.
ELEVATE, now in its ninth year, returns with the theme “Finding Identity Amid Media Plurality”. Compared to its previous one-day workshop installments, this year’s ELEVATE will be held as a webinar series from October 24 to November 7, 2020, exploring themes and trends in broadcasting, journalism, and the digital media industry.
Participants of the webinar series will get the chance to engage in panel discussions by esteemed professionals in the fields of broadcasting, journalism, and other digital media, incorporating relevant concerns that people experience this quarantine period – from managing one’s mental health to dealing with misinformation through media. True to its objective, ELEVATE continues to be an avenue in strengthening the identity and advocating for the mandate of press media, both on ground and online.
UP Radio Circle’s ELEVATE 9: Finding Identity Amid Media Plurality is brought to you by the Union of Journalists of the Philippines – UP Diliman and UP Cinema, in partnership with UP Journalism Club, and its official media partners Inquirer.net, Inquirer Pop, When in Manila, and DZUP 1602.
