MARG is a feminist collective that collaboratively researches with grassroots media activists to co-produce research and media toward transformative social change. Our work is guided by five pillars: anti-capitalism, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, feminism, and queer & trans liberation.
We are research collective based in Ontario studying radical, activist media around the world. We have a multi-year research grant funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), through Lakehead University. We are using this opportunity to explore and document the processes of organization in radical media and to build networks and capacity within communities and internationally.
Through this website we will share our research and also provide a platform for media activists to receive training and share their projects with other activists. In particular, we will be creating a digital map of various activist projects around the world and digital workshops for on-line skill sharing.
