Newsmotion is an initiative that hopes to bring together civic media, public art, and original documentary reportage. We are interested in empowering independent media and independent voices to help the critical issues of our time engage new audiences and find new solutions. We think of this project as Civic Media Storytelling.

"The project of a collective of award-winning journalists and journalism thinkers." - Harvard's Nieman Lab

Rooted in an ethos of collaboration and transparency, we aim to do the following:

  • Work to provide open source technology tools that foster reliability, accuracy, and ease in connecting to important information and compelling stories.
  • Create and distribute original content on under-reported topics and themes that will be made available online and at public events,
  • Work to facilitate production from under-represented communities
  • Support media literacy and democratic media policy, ensuring a free and open global communication network.
