We Are Our Media Meets Bristol Cable

The Bristol Cable are one of the best known independent media cooperatives in the country.

They have more than 2,000 members, print a free quarterly magazine / newspaper, with a circulation of 30,000 copies. They have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds and also publish stories on-line.

And now they are coming to Newcastle to share their insights with We Are Our Media.

We have the amazing opportunity for all of our supporters, contributors, writers, trustees and editors to join us for a special meeting where we will be learning from their journey.

So please join us, come armed with questions, put on your best investigative hats and let's uncover what they've been up, how they do it, what they do and why.

There'll be the usual WOAM refreshments, fun and welcome. So do come along
