Co Media Lab, the community media lab is a joint initiative with Radio Active CR 90.4 MHz (licensed to Jain University). It serves as a newsroom and resource centre for student journalists and citizen contributors. It explores convergence of media across genre – digital stories, podcasts, radio episodes, video explainers, performances, photography, face to face conversation and discussion.
The lab also encourages, supports, and trains community journalists/producers, organising regular workshops on city issues, citizen journalism, media production, problem solving etc. In addition, it will support young journalists – providing student internships/training for a live newsroom experience.
The lab’s vision is to enable cross pollination of knowledge and ideas, amplify community voices and citizen engagement and build a culture of collective problem solving.
