PressProgress is Hosting an Event About Independent Media and Canada’s Changing Journalism Landscape

Our guest panelists will share their insights into how Canada’s independent media outlets are punching above their weight

Canada’s journalism landscape is changing, and smaller, independent media outlets are starting to fill-in the gaps left by older newspapers and big corporate media outlets.

PressProgress, an award-winning non-profit news organization, is hosting a virtual event on March 29, 2022 called “Punching Above Our Weight: The Outsized Impact of Canadian Independent Media” that will take a look at where journalism is heading and how independent media outlets are punching above their weight.

The panel will share their thoughts on how Canadian independent media has been successful in shifting perceptions about current events, politics and identity in Canada.

The event is moderated by Emily Leedham, PressProgress’ Prairies reporter and editor of PressProgress’ weekly national labour newsletter Shift Work, who will be joined by four guest panelists:

• Saima Desai: Editor of Briarpatch Magazine, a national magazine of grassroots politics based on Treaty 4 territory in Regina, Saskatchewan.

• André Goulet: Executive director of the Harbinger Media Network, an independent media nonprofit amplifying the voices of a new generation of leftist media creators.

• Kevin Taghabon: Editor at The Hoser, whose reporting focuses on labour, police violence and protests and demonstrations in Toronto.

• Mel Woods: Associate culture editor at Xtra Magazine, a non-profit online magazine and community platform covering LGBTQ2S+ culture, politics, relationships and health.
