|Focus||Social justice and environmental video|
EngageMedia is a not-for-profit Video for Change organisation that began in March 2005. The organisation focusses on creating social change through the distribution of human rights and environmental video, media and technology capacity building, research, network development and digital rights advocacy.
In June 2006 EngageMedia collaborated with CandidaTV in Rome to put on Transmission at the Forte Prenestino social centre. Transmission was a global gathering of free software developers and video activists developing online video distribution tools for social justice and media democracy. The event in Rome was followed up by London, Re:Transmission, in October 2006, and Vx:Mission Amsterdam in January 2007.
In May 2008 a Transmission Asia-Pacific (TXAP) event was coordinated by EngageMedia and the Jakarta based Ruangrupa near Sukabumi in West Java. The five-day event brought together 55 video activists and developers from 15 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific.
In June 2012 EngageMedia and WITNESS co-founded the Video4Change Network, an alliance of video activism organisations from across the globe.
EngageMedia maintains offices in Melbourne, Australia, and Yogyakarta, Indonesia, with other staff based regionally and globally.
In 2013 EngageMedia collaborated with the MIT Center for Civic Media and Open Documentary Lab to investigate the impact of Video for Change practices.
