The fourth European Conference Devoted to Minority and Local Media is the 9th event of this communication platform and this year it focuses on the main topic Future & Communication, including the past and artistic production seen through this prism, and observing inspiration as phenomena that creates and changes societies. We are bringing together all levels of communication.


We will present the contemporary co-productions in various media formats as a result of our previous events, as well as a scientific view of the current situation in the media as an instrument for exercising minority rights.

One of the topics will be the religious media, and we are going to elaborate how these media contribute to minority communities.

From the point of view of the media profession, this year we are focusing on radio production, podcast and streaming.

The format of the event is a video production and it will be available on YouTube channel of Heror Media Pont, and on FB Pages Heror Media Pont and Media Pont.


The content is available in English and Serbian.
