Does the media understand Muslims? Do Muslims understand the media?
And what happens when 60 young Muslims spend a weekend in the same hall as 30 journalists?
In May 2012, Multicultural Media Exchange, an organisation that encourages honest discussion between people of different backgrounds, convened the Media & Young Muslim Conference. Held at the Melbourne Town Hall, and attended by the likes of George Negus and Mohammed Elleissy, the three-day conference was covered by Melbourne journalist Bill Snaddon.
"Muslims and the Media" is a short, homemade documentary that emerged from Bill's coverage.
