The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them.
Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
EachOther is a small digital journalism charity and a creative agency specialising in work with third sector and charitable organisations. Our speciality is understanding the language of rights and the particular challenges of making work about difficult subjects.
We have been commissioned by organisations such as Liberty, The Bar Council, Traveller Movement, Bail for Immigration Detainees, The English Collective of Prostitutes, The Equality Trust, The EHRC, The Council of Europe, The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, the Public Law Project and Young Citizens.
You can find out more about commissioning us here.
We are proud to announce the launch of our human rights programme for storytellers at Goldsmiths University, London. The Knowing Your Rights: Storytellers Programme is a ground-breaking and unique opportunity for students and staff, to produce multi-media work that addresses human rights issues in the UK.
Under the Knowing Our Rights: Storytellers programme, students will have the opportunity to pitch an idea and be given editorial support in order to see their work be published by an award winning human rights charity. This innovative programme will support individuals and groups to produce thoughtful and dynamic work that addresses and raises awareness for human rights issues in the UK.
Launched in 2019, Goldsmiths’ Department of Law is already widely recognised as a centre of excellence that aims to reconceptualise legal education, encompassing immersive and experiential learning as well as engaging with key social issues.
The Law Department has itself invested energy in disseminating research and knowledge on human rights, including through its Knowing Our Rights initiative, with an emphasis on young people in secondary schools in London and other parts of the UK. Its faculty includes some of the most prominent human rights thinkers and legal practitioners in the country.
