a friend of ours, Taku san, will be stopping by in KL to share/spread the idea of an online-media project called Champon that he is currently involved with. so far he has gone to Hong Kong and Taiwan to talk about Champon and planning on doing the same here in KL- to meet activists, people who are into using media as a medium to disseminate propaganda/information/whatever, and people to exchange information and to learn how the media is being used in their local cities.

Champon is actually an online-media project which distributes information from Asia all over the world. It is being organized by the ‘Asian Media Activist Network’ which is coordinated by activists from throughout Asia. These independent media activists deal with common social problems in Asia from a global viewpoint and with matters particular to each Asian region. In doing so, we aim to establish an open, common site which is able to host various media formats. Through constructing and operating a common web-site, we will deepen the relationships and further mutual understanding throughout Asia and develop new, cooperative, creative activities. We call on independent media activists throughout Asia to participate in ‘Champon’.

so we are doing a little session to introduce Champon at rumah FNB (PONYO) and at the sky bunker community house/komuniti bunker langit. here are the details:

date: February 3th 2009, Tuesday

time: 8.00 pm

venue: the sky bunker community/komuniti bunker langit – it’s in Setapak; nearest public transportation would be wangsa maju putra lrt station. from there onwards taxi or bus.  (its a secret location so please call this number to get directions 0176845286)
*there will be light refreshment but people are encouraged to bring their own snacks as well

date: February 5th 2009, Thursday
time: 8.00 pm
venue: rumah FNB/PONYO (map)

everyone is invited to come and if you have any videos to show or if you would like to present anything that would be alright too. the whole idea is to have an interactive session and to exchange information on how independent media is used and can be used.
