An online exhibition featuring three platforms that support community media that permits marginalized voices to communicate what they find important

Each of these projects mobilizes the idea of polyphony by featuring a multiplicity of voices, topics, and practices with vastly different methods and approaches. The featured collaborative and participatory projects from India, Canada, and Indigenous nations in the US show ways of how to think beyond the auteur towards new kinds of media organizations and practices to bring new knowledges to the forefront
