Vivendi launches TheMediaShaker,
a cultural and creativity discussion platform



Vivendi is launching today TheMediaShaker (, a wide-ranging discussion platform on culture and creativity in the digital age. The platform is open to all interested parties (artists, professionals, experts, observers, policy makers) and reflects differing opinions on any given issue.

Through this initiative, Vivendi intends to generate active exchanges of views and opinions on the future of the media and content industries.

TheMediaShaker aims to promote the most pertinent ideas at European level. Regular feedback will be provided online as well as on Vivendi’s Vivoice webradio and through summary reports.

This discussion platform is part of providing valuable information, resources and original perspectives on artist inspirations, cultural industries and the world of creativity.
