The media world is changing, and it's changing fast. We all know the story—the old forms of media are dying off, from newspapers to TV to radio. The last companies that survive are so consolidated that the media industry is basically a monopoly.
But there's another side to that story—the story of independent media blossoming unlike anything in recent memory.
Frank Lopez founded Sub.Media nearly two decades ago. Today, he's able to live off of independent journalism. He'll be talking about why independent media is more important than ever, and how journalists can become autonomous by building our own infrastructure.

We would also like to acknowledge that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
