Conversations with the Earth (CWE) is an indigenous-led multimedia 
campaign to amplify indigenous voices on Climate Change. A collaboration 
between indigenous communities, journalists, photographers, designers, 
and participatory video facilitators. CWE is initially present as an 
exhibition in Copenhagen, supporting live presentations by 
representatives of several indigenous communities as delegates gather 
for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of 
the Parties meeting (COP15).  

The Citizens' Media special issue, Volume 19 (4&5) is guest edited by 
Jethro Pettit, Juan Francisco Salazar, and Alfonso Gumucio Dagron.

Citizens’ media and communication are still poorly understood in the 
mainstream of development policy and practice – and are prone to 
simplistic forms of implementation, because of the lack of a coherent 
grasp of the social, cultural, and political processes that make them 
transformative. Introducing the articles in this guest issue, the 
authors find that citizens’ media is about more than bringing diverse 
voices into pluralist politics: it contributes to processes of social 
and cultural construction, redefining norms and power relations that 
exclude people. Local ownership and control of their own media can allow 
people to reshape the spaces in which their voices find expression.

Special issue: Citizen's Media and communication
Now 8 issues per year

Augusto Boal (1931-2009)
We dedicate this special issue to the memory of Augusto Boal, the 
Brazilian director and playwright whose 'Theatre of the Oppressed' 
inspired countless activists worldwide to bring theatre, art, media, and 
communication into their work for social change. Boal created a critical 
and mobilising kind of theatre for 'humanising humanity', where actors 
mix with people in the streets and on public transport, and spectators 
become 'spect-actors'. His work spread to many countries and evolved 
into methods like Forum Theatre, Legislative Theatre, Journalists' 
Theatre, Theatre of the Factory, Theatre of the Office, and many others. 
Augusto Boal affirmed that 'the theatre is all of us' - and that through 
it we can reveal the power that shapes our lives, transforms the 
silences, and overcomes oppression. May his work live on and continue to 
inspire.
