Editorial Policy

shado mag CIC is a multimedia platform driving change at the intersection of arts, activism and academia. 

shado’s aim is to exist as an international media platform which cuts through the noise of an oversaturated attention economy.

Through a commitment to grassroots journalism, self-narration and arts as advocacy, shado uses the power of combined mediums to deliver a new culture of storytelling with a fresh perspective on global topics.

We believe that those with lived experience of an issue or injustice are best placed to discuss and advocate for meaningful change in that space: therefore, shado exists as a platform for such people.

We are committed to supporting grassroots journalism and amplifying the voices of those at the front of social and political change.
