Join us for a free lecture by Julia Cagé, author of Saving the Media: Capitalism, Crowdfunding, and Democracy, on October 1 at the School of Journalism.
In this talk, entitled From Philanthropy to Democracy: Rethinking the governance and funding of high-quality news in the digital age, Dr. Cagé will call for changes to the legal frameworks governing journalism.
She will advocate for the creation of not for profit organizations that could reinvest surplus funds into journalistic production, encourage citizen participation, and create tax incentives for private contributions.
Canada has lagged in this area until recently, but new opportunities are on the horizon now that the federal government has made changes that allow more charitable donations to journalism. Dr. Cagé will discuss her ideas for a media vouchers system, a new public funding model free from government intervention.
