Abstract / Summary

Joining the dots between geographically isolated communities: how digital media can empower young and marginalized people to have an equal voice in local and global communities.

This paper explores the upsurge of interest and investment in digital media in Cornwall over the last five years paying particular focus to the expansion of collaborative work between creative practitioners and young people: contextualised by the current framework of economic & community regeneration priorities at regional, national and European levels.

It examines the role digital media can (does) play in the regeneration of rural economies, depleted by the degeneration of traditional industries, and in understanding and improving community cohesion (high on UK & EU agendas.)

As the technology needed to create media content becomes ever more accessible, with young people at the cutting edge of democratising content generation and consumption – it looks beyond the current cycle of short term funded projects, at how effective practices in developing more equal accessibility to the global media stage can be successfully and sustainably embedded in the delivery of community services in Cornwall, and how the best rural and urban models can be shared.
