Another piece of good news – we’re delighted to report that the Bertha Foundation, which supports a variety of social justice causes and selected initiatives such as Britdoc – has recently decided to give financial backing to the “Teaching Documentary” symposium. As the Foundation’s website explains:
Media has the power to inform, educate and inspire action. We support content creation and help connect that content to audiences who can be mobilized for positive social change. We also support organizations that use media as a tool for social impact. Our aim is to enable information to be more accessible to audiences who can become active on the issues explored. The result is a media landscape that is diverse, relevant and action-oriented.
We’re grateful for the Foundation’s support, particularly at a time when public funding is becoming more and more limited.
