About Telling Our Own Stories: People Of Colour in Scotland’s Media

It’s the beginning of a conversation about the lack of representation in Scotland’s media and what we can do about it together.

We have an incredible line up of participants so far, including:

* Arusa Qureshi: Arusa is the Editor of The List.
* Chris Manson: Chris is a writer and illustrator based in Glasgow.
* Nico Ndlovu: Nico is stand up comedian and community journalist living in Glasgow.
* Shola da Rocha-Afodu: Shola is a content creator for BBC The Social and Sunny Govan Community Radio Station
* layla-roxanne hill: layla-roxanne is a writer/curator-artist/activist-organiser. She writes for Bella Caledonia, is curator for Enough! and a Director at Scotland's investigative journalism co-operative, The Ferret
* Dr Francesca Sobande: Dr Sobande is a lecturer in digital media studies at Cardiff University

We are also glad to be joined by Guardian columnist Gary Younge.

When the media fails to properly reflect society, it distorts which stories are told, how they are told, who gets to tell them. There are too many stories misreported or ignored.

People of colour are massively unrepresented among Scotland’s professional journalists. Across the UK, those producing our media are 94% white, compared to just 87% of the wider population.

It’s time for change; we need to tell our own stories.

This event is open to people of colour and we welcome people of colour of all genders and identities.

Lunch privided by Kuche.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Telling Our Own Stories: People Of Colour in Scotland’s Media are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
