The Tiziano Project

The Tiziano Project provides community members in conflict, post-conflict, and under reported regions with the equipment, training, and affiliations necessary to report their stories and improve their lives.

The Tiziano Project strives to develop and encourage first-class collaborative journalism on a global scale. They are dedicated to expanding knowledge and access to information worldwide by empowering communities to tell their stories. Through innovative use of information technology, they work towards the betterment of the human condition - one story at a time - by creating jobs and providing educational opportunities in forgotten parts of the world.

By teaching students how to tell and distribute their stories through new media, The Tiziano Project empowers them to produce firsthand narratives of their lives and to shape the world's perception of their culture and conditions.

MIT Center For Civic Media

The MIT Center for Civic Media works hand in hand with diverse communities to collaboratively create, design, deploy, and assess civic media tools and practices.

We are inventors of new technologies that support and foster civic media and political action, we are a hub for the study of these technologies, and we coordinate community-based design processes locally in the Boston area, across the United States, and around the world.

We use the term civic media, rather than citizen journalism: civic media is any form of communication that strengthens the social bonds within a community or creates a strong sense of civic engagement among its residents. Civic media goes beyond news gathering and reporting. MIT researchers and students are experimenting with a variety of new civic media techniques, from technologies for protests and civil disobedience to phone-texting systems that allow instant, sophisticated votes on everyday activities. The Center amplifies the development of these technologies for community empowerment, while also serving to generate curricula and open-source frameworks for civic action.
