We Are Our Media is coming to Teesside
After growing interest, we will be putting on an information workshop in Teesside which will explore what We Are Our Media is, what a publication or project for Teesside could look like and how people could get involved.
Our Vision is a world in which the voice of the people is louder than the voice of corporate-owned press. Where news is accessible, relevant, independent and investigative. And where people are empowered to raise issues and share their own stories.
We are a collective of people from across the North East who believe we deserve better than what is currently being offered to us, by way of the main stream media.
We have created an alternative tabloid 'The Eclipse', investigated stories locally, trained up citizen journalists, provided a platform for people's voices and have also ran various workshops, around citizen journalism, writing for tabloids, writing headlines etc.
So far, we have been focussed mainly within the Tyne and Wear area, but our desire is to reach people across the North East. Our latest edition includes stories from Stockton and Middlesbrough and we have writers, supporters and editors from all across the Teesside area.
We hope this event will park people's imaginations, connect our Teesside contributors and supporters and be an enjoyable evening for all. There will be some light snacks, drinks and we will also have latest editions of The Eclipse for people to take away.
