Making Sense of Media Networking Event - Manchester, 15th June

From Ofcom’s Making Sense of Media Team:

Our network has continued to grow and currently has over 400 members across the UK and International community. In December 2021 we published our new approach to media literacy outlining our priority areas of work, alongside our ongoing research.

In order to make communications work for everyone, we will be adopting a more local, community-based approach to some of our media literacy work. We are very pleased to announce that this programme of activity includes a series of in-person events across the UK’s nations.

When and where?

Manchester: 15 June, 10:00-12:30Manchester Art Gallery, The Lecture room, Mosley St, Manchester M2 3JL

Booking here.

Please note this is an in-person event. Registration will open 15 mins in advance to ensure a prompt start to the event.

What to expect?

A detailed agenda will be shared with registered attendees closer to the event date. We will present Ofcom’s overall approach to media literacy, as well as a deep dive into a particular area of our work. We will have guest presenters and will allow time for small-group discussions in addition to Q&A sessions. We expect this event to be a great way to connect with our new and existing network members and deepen our relationships.

We would be delighted if you can join us. If you have questions or you would like to get in touch with a team member, you can email us at

Kind regards,

Making Sense of Media Team
