Have your voice heard on what Matters to you!
This is a way for you and your friends to answer a question set by a real client. The Matter supports you to research, produce and ship a newspaper that has your voice in it. You’ll also learn some skills that will make employers think you’re top.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Matter are constantly asking new and challenging questions. You have the chance to choose which project you’ll apply to work on. We get briefs from big clients and pose you the questions.
Once selected, you’ll join a small team (usually 6-10 people) and work together for about three months. Together you will research the question in your community and amongst your peers
Your team will write, design and publish your own newspaper, where you’ll have the chance to put your opinions, ideas and solutions to paper and present it back to an audience at a launch event. You will be led by us so don’t worry if you’ve never done this before, we will be here to help!
