OUR ETHOS

Every person has a right to have their voice heard

Stories are a powerful way to relate to one another and engage with the world around us. We believe that every one of us is an expert in our own life and circumstances, and that by sharing our expertise and telling our story we can create positive change for ourselves and our communities.

Our expertise is in working with others to help them tell their stories.

Media Education has six staff, who together make up the board of directors, working with a shared vision and a core belief that every person has a right to have their voice heard. We are a community interest company who see the application of filmmaking as a tool for personal and community development and that’s why we use a co-production approach, working directly with people with lived experience, to create issue-based films and podcasts.
