On April 8th & 9th, Columbia College in Chicago will host a major arts & media Summit called "Art, Access & Action" to explore the intersection of arts, media and politics and the role of artists and media makers in society. The college will give community arts & media organizations and organizations that promote art and media activism a unique opportunity to connect with students who are interested in creating art and media for social change.

The Summit will also look at shifts in art, media, and technology that threaten the future of democracy in America.

As co-chair and lead organizer of this Summit, I interviewed one of the Summit's speakers, Executive Director for the Center for Media Justice Malkia Cyril. She is a communication rights activist, someone dedicated to the struggle to ensure that people of color's rights are defended as regulations are passed determining how much power and control corporations have over the Internet.
