About the Art & Civic Media
Art & Civic Media believe that civics is changing, becoming more open to participation through media and technology, even as traditional government institutions suffer from increasing public mistrust. We believe that designing media tools and spaces for social change through participatory practices is a key way of ensuring that an emergent civics is more fair and inclusive than current methods.
In particular, Art & Civic Media develop research tools and conduct case studies to help us understand media ecosystems, augment civic participation, and foster digital inclusion. We use design methods informed by social justice to build technologies that amplify the voices of communities often excluded from the public sphere.
