Inspiration Spurt at the First Afrik Digest’s Ethnic Media Exchange
– Way to easily bridge the ethnic gap
On Wednesday, March 23rd 2022, Afrik Digest, with the amazing support of the Aurora Office of Immigrants and International Affairs, convened a fantastic media networking event tagged, Colorado Ethnic News Media Exchange.
It was an inspiring and productive media gathering of media personnel from the various Colorado ethnic news outlets. Guests were relaxed and felt free to share their media challenges, successes and best practices. Conversation on news gathering and dissemination flowed in a convivial atmosphere. The exchange was the first of its kind in Colorado and most likely succeeded in establishing collaborative relationships and laying a foundation to strengthen community ties.
I was blown away and highly impressed by the inspiring conversations and the powerful responses that people offered. At the end of the day, we resolved to do an encore of the exchange as soon as any of us could arrange to host one.
The delightful event, which was held at the Aurora Room of the Aurora Municipal Center, was one in a series of community engagements lined up by Afrik Digest in partnership with the Urban Tikkun Center Denver. We are grateful to the Office of Immigrant and International Affairs for helping to organize the event.
