Communication and Participation: Freedoms and Constraints of the Audio-Visual. Proceedings of the Colloquy (Charleroi, Belgium, March 1981).
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
Papers and reports are presented from a colloquy that was a culminating project of the European Council for Cultural Cooperation. In "Public Participation, Self Expression of Groups and Individuals," Paul Beaud discusses the concepts of community media and the new media. "The Evolution of the Great Communication Networks," by Sean MacReamoinn, relates the present crisis in telecommunications to developments in new technology and audiovisual media, organizational changes occurring in the major networks, and the financial arrangements involved in these changes. Reports of four working groups are presented by Holde Lhoest (Information), Margareta Ingelstam (Education), Peter M. Lewis (Entertainment), and Monique Sauvage (Culture). A general report by Henry Ingberg emphasizes that the traditional divisions of the functions of radio and television (information, education, entertainment, and culture) do not correspond to recent developments in the electronic media. Ingberg discusses new technologies, media mergers and centralization, audience fragmentation, profit and non-profit participation in the media, public service, and the contributions of four working groups. Appendices include a draft resolution on "Cultural Development and Electronic Media" and a list of colloquy participants. (LMM)
