“In journalism, white, male, Western voices still dominate and are often privileged over others, which means that we are not getting the whole story, or the most accurate one.”
– Unbias the News
Changing the nature of media in Scotland is not just about providing a platform for new writers, it is about changing who gets a voice.
We have a brand new project to try and amplify those whose voices often go unheard or are too often under or (mis) represented or marginalised.
We aim to create a media platform that looks more like our society and challenges cultural norms and orthodoxy, to do this we are launching a fully-funded programme called Many Voices.
The project for 2020/2021 offers a series of positions as Commissioning Editor to work as part of the Bella team over a four-month period.
In the first phase we have a space to commission six people to work on their own projects. Each will develop a separate commission to explore a theme. Each person will be funded to carry out their work and have a commissioning budget to also facilitate others from within their emerging networks. This might be to work on writing a book, researching a subject, working with a particular community of people, or developing a focused theme over a period of time.
We don’t take any advertising, we don’t hide behind a pay wall and we don’t keep harassing you for crowd-funding. We’re entirely dependent on our readers to support us.
