Centre for Creative & Critical MEdia
The role of media is to reflect the society we live in, with accuracy, sensitivity and freedom.
At the Centre for Creative and Critical Media, we believe in media education that combines new-age skills with well-rounded and much-needed perspectives on regional, national and global politics, justice, peace, development and social change. The goal is to educate and sensitize a new cadre of media professionals who are able to create without bias, to criticize without fear and to inform and represent all sections of society through the media they promote.
Our endeavour is to bring in voices and world-views of dalits, muslims, adivasis, women and youth from northern parts of Karnataka to the mainstream Kannada media houses, enhancing ethics and expanding representation in the media world.
We are working towards strengthening the vernacular print & electronic media with young professionals who are technically skilled, informed about national, regional & global politics, and sensitive to the complexities of social change, peace and development.
