An Innovative Online Publication

This publication is an online multimedia platform that seeks to bring honest reporting and emotive art together through innovative media to promote social equality within our community.  Founded March 2012, it is run by a volunteer collective consisting of a wide-variety of contributors: writers, researchers, graphic designers, artists, photographers, and videographers – all committed to awareness of and education about social and environmental injustices. By blending the academic pursuit of social equality with artistic ability, we focus on social justice both from a written and visual perspective.  This ad-free project dissolves barriers between academic inquiry and public information, barriers which we believe represents a substantive yet surmountable failure of academia and conventional media outlets.  We seek to bring awareness to the gamut of human rights issues which receive little to no attention through traditional media.

the medes runs entirely on volunteer time and we are constantly on the lookout for new team members – both for artist submissions and administrative help.  If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this effort, please contact us for more details on these opportunities.
