Participation is the key feature of Community Media; it is what places community media outside of traditional media models, in which audiences are passive receivers of messages. In the Community Media Model, senders and receivers together create messages and meaning through participatory processes.
A quality community service is one that:
1. Validates and strengthens communities
2. Covers topics that are relevant to the community
3. Encourages community discussion and debate
Applying Audio-Visual Communication Strategies, MANT has always taken participatory approaches in developing high quality contents. A basic foundation for this is creating relevant, believable messages within our productions like Serial Radio Dramas, Magazine Programmes and Publications etc. which are appropriate to the target audience, and which present a social message for change.
