Solidarity Fund PL in cooperation with Outriders Studio introduces new media support programme Media Garage addressed to independent media creators in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine. We aim at strengthening media accountability, improving their capacities and providing selected outlets with financial support. With a series of workshops and an elaborate mentoring agenda, we strive to improve not only the quality of produced content but also to help the participants with their day-to-day management and distribution strategies.

In the nine-month-long pilot programme, the selected participants will have an opportunity to take part in intensive consultations led by the professional media experts and practitioners, as well as receive training during workshops and seminars tailored specifically to their needs. All parts of the programme will have a strictly practical character related to various aspects of media activity.

Who can apply?

If you are selected to participate in the programme, you will be invited to a series of initiatives organised for you by the Outriders team. First of all, the experts will analyse your current situation in terms of your needs and plans. You will be provided with a series of at least three training sessions held in Warsaw, 3-5 days each, during which you will learn modern content creation techniques, media management and business strategies. Then, you will be expected to introduce these solutions into your daily practice. To facilitate the process, you will be offered an experienced mentor. Finally, if you stay committed to improving your performance, your outlet will be supported with a grant of a total sum up to 25.000 EUR.    

What will I have to do?

In order to be eligible, you must prove your independence from political parties and other political actors. To be considered for participation, you will have to disclose your financing scheme and agree to become subject to content screening. 

You will be required to sign a contract specifying your and our obligations as well as code of conduct. We also expect you to participate in the offered training sessions and to accept the mentoring programme. Finally, you need to be ready to embrace the change in the way your outlet functions. Only then we will be ready to finance your ideas and further development.
