DOCUSOUND is a media literacy project that provides access to information and communication technology (ICT), as well as media production and other forms of production-related information—in order to strengthen democracy and expand social participation for minorities and other marginalized members of society in Africa and developing countries worldwide.
DOCUSOUND is also a crossmedia platform for production and distribution of creative audio-documentaries. DOCUSOUND is a weapon of mass-awareness construction: we foster the culture of oral storytelling in all shapes and forms and we advocate for all minorities to be involved in the production and exchange of culture and information. Our goal is a worldwide network where stories from all over the world are shared and can inspire the audience to participate. We know the impact of oral storytelling and we want to rediscover it: we look for people’s voices, vehicle of stories and emotions, the essence of communication, roots of every story.
