Media Fund Cooperative AGM on 9.2.109

Leo Sammallahti Public Seen by 157

The Media Fund cooperative has an annual general meeting on 9th of Febuary.

The cooperative consists of few dozen independent publications, mostly left-leaning and online. This includes for example Open Democracy, which is a rather well known publication.

Iwan Doherty, founder of one of the publications (The Peoples News), would be happy to propose something on behalf of Platform6 in their annual general meeting.

We could offer to set up Open Collectives for membership medias, so their readers could become their patrons easily.

Later on we could pitch articles describing Platform6 to the member publications as a way to do outreach.

Any other ideas on how to collaborate with The Media Fund? Who would they have to contact to set up an Open Collective?


Thanks for this Leo. I've been out of the loop for a week with flu. I think that we need to spend some time working out our OC "offer" before going live and that this should be a priority. Directors are meeting later and we'll be talking about OC. I think that an offer in time for the 9th is pushing it.
