Our capital city of Olympia has a host of independent media arts and non-commercial media organizations. Free Speech Week takes place October 16-23, 2017 and communities across the United States will be joining together to celebrate the history and impact of community media in fostering democracy. Our community is invited to attend events across Thurston County during Free Speech Week and on Community Media Day, including watching/listening to special programs, attending Open Houses, and screenings around town. These events are free and open to the public.
To finish up the week, the Olympia Film Society and Thurston Community Media present a special screening of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. This partnership launches the first Meaningful Movies site in Thurston County. Meaningful Movies is a nonprofit organization that uses film to “educate and advocate […] to build positive and meaningful community and a more just and peaceful world.”
The Best Democracy Money Can Buy will screen at the Capitol Theater on Sunday, October 22 at 5 p.m. (doors open at 4:30 p.m.), with a suggested donation of $10, benefitting Meaningful Movies and the Olympia Film Society. A panel discussion on the film will follow.
During Free Speech week and Community Media Day, we urge community media fans to take time to visit your local stations or to make a donation. Partners in this event include Thurston Community Media, KAOS Community Radio, Media Island International, KOWA 106.1 FM, and the Olympia Film Society.
