Experience another side of Australia, with us.

Our

mission

We want to make Australia’s media landscape truly representative of our society’s cultural, linguistic, gender, and disability diversity.

We gratefully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, on whose land we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respect to all First Nations peoples.

* Giving the finger to the mainstream media.      * Not same same;  very very different.       * To the unheard voices,  we hear you.

Our

impact

It’s no secret that we have a diversity problem in Australian media. More than 12 million people at the intersection of race, culture, language, gender identity, and disability are not sufficiently represented in our media.

* Giving the finger to the mainstream media.      * Not same same;  very very different.       * To the unheard voices,  we hear you.
