Masses usually are marginated when it comes to using communication and media, it has always been like that. Internet brought a place for expression to growth, to give public access to express, share and learn. Yet, the world away from the keyboard is still absent of such places, only really governed by concentrated media, weather it is tv, radio, paper publications or street advertising. On the other hand, civil society tries to express themselves doing street art, building small magazines and trying to make the most of Internet space, from blogs to instagram to youtube and twitter. This project aims to break those barrier by creating a light weight platform that puts together crowdfunding, professionals and a free chamber for the voices of those who don't have access to the dominant communication channels. We propose to put together campaigns decided by the community, funded by the community, testing new ways to break that gap between the world away fro the keyboard to the open space that internet is. That can be achieved by crossing those world by funding channels, like buying advertising space in media, billboards, magazines, papers, facebook or helping cultural street projects to get to a wider audience, always transmitting that community voice well constructed by professionals communicators, lawyers or artist. A simple hashtag leading to a whole thread of expression or a QR leading to an open video channels being publicly read in traditional media can bring voices to places where today they are absent. The real potential of this project is yet t be discovered and the means are yet to be built, but we are confident it is worth trying to put together such endeavor. We find our strength in those we serve, the marginalized community.

  • expectedOutcome I think the project is doable and it doesn't require that much man power, but, it does need fresh minds with a lot of will power. I am a team player, and a team builder. I already have the startup project but I need to get it to a second stage, and I not only need, I want to do it with the community. Therefore, I want the public of this Party to know about it and possible get engaged in any way they can.
