What is InMedia?

The aim of the project is to develop a strategy for the implementation of active media work by and for people who are affected by social exclusion. The prerequisite for this is a comprehensive educational process for those who work in participatory media.

“Community media” as a form of civil society media create publicity for people and their concerns and thus serve the participation of individuals and social groups. In 2008 and 2009, the EU Parliament and the Council of Ministers declared community media to be an important part of a democratic media system and challenged the member states to ensure that they were strengthened.

Targets of the project

  • To develop a strategy for the implementation of active media work by and for people who are affected by social exclusion.
  • Exchange and development of tools and methods for a stronger and sustainable opening of the institutions involved to social groups affected by exclusion.

That means an exchange on the following points:

  • What influence does the media have on exclusion or inclusion processes in the partner-countries?
  • Reflection on the own requirements and own work: where are the barriers and obstacles?

The aim is to develop awareness of mechanisms of exclusion and discrimination in the media and to develop a closer relationsship with local communities affected by exclusion.
