Metamedia is an educational platform for journalism, storytelling and development of new media. Metamedia was launched in 2020 as an online platform to support independent media and research projects, organise trainings and consultations for journalist and multimedia materials. The platform brings together editorial offices, journalist associations and media organisations from Eastern Europe and Germany for cross-border collaboration.



Every few months we will send you a newsletter with announcements of new trainings, micro-grants and study trips for journalists and media activists.
