This article reflects on two processes of appropriation and media management with a social sense, which are founded upon the recognition of communication processes and their impact on the transformations of peripheral environments by empowered communities and the emancipated agents of communicative mediation. Two experiences of social communication are taken as a reference, which respond to divergent scenarios: On the one hand, that from Project Barrio U´s volunteers who work within the framework of the University of Antioquia´s extension program is considered, as it offers an academic field of professional training in social communication. On the other hand, the initiative named Barrio Revealing (Revelando Barrio), from the Ciudad Comuna communication group, whose emphasis rests on community communication. These two experiences highlight the importance of the role of subjects in the processes of appropriation and management of media with a social sense and they allow the recognition of the communication processes that bring about the transformation of the subjectivities of the mediating actors (community communicator, volunteer) and the emergence of communicative territoriality. © 2019 Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
