Eyewitness Causes Changes
The Eyewitness Studio aims to heighten public awareness about the situation regarding justice, freedom and human rights in Georgia and the South Caucasus region. A prominent place is given to contributions focusing on the peaceful resolution of conflicts.
The Studio’s team of professional journalists, as well as resident reporters from amongst general public - the Live Voices Network - produces a series of short films and multimedia outputs documenting real-life stories experienced by local communities and individuals, as a balance and alternative to the mainstream media.
The project aspires to offer a platform for voices that are frequently marginalized in the mainstream media, such as those of ethnic minorities, women and young people.
The members of the Live Voices Network have their blogs linked to this website.
As not everybody in the Caucasus has access to the Internet, the Studio's team arranges screenings of films in local communities, followed by discussions on the topics raised in the films. Several local televisions broadcast the films produced by the Eyewitness Studio.
The detailed reports about the past, current and future events can be read, watched and heard on the page News and Events.
