We werken aan een geheim plan om de wereld over te nemen. Tot die tijd zetten we ons in voor non fictie fotografie, solutions journalism en idealen in uitvoering.

Fotografie staat dichtbij de realiteit en is dus het media bij uitstek om het te hebben over wat er in de wereld gaande is. Het grenst aan kunst, visual storytelling en journalistiek dus je kunt er alle kanten mee op. Non fictie, no nonsense: we willen het echt ergens over hebben in een taal die voor iedereen toegankelijk is. Fotografie is het.

Solutions journalism zien wij als een vorm van journalistiek waarbij we kijken naar aanleiding, achterliggende thema’s en mogelijke oplossingen voor maatschappelijke fenomenen. Deze vorm van journalistiek is ons uitgangspunt voor eigen producties (lees: tentoonstellingen) waarin we op de inhoud ingaan, de diepte inspringen en het beest in de bek kijken. Tenminste, dat is het idee.

Talent, duurzaamheid, educatie, kunst, persvrijheid en internationalisering. Wij hebben deze stippen aan de horizon gezet en gaan ervoor. Zonder uitdaging geen vooruitgang. Lees er alles over in ons Manifest.
