Impact Team Labs

Project Name: Impact Team Labs

Funding Recipient: Media Farm

Activity: ‘Impact Teams Lab’ is a new initiative that brings together participants from three different groups or categories – producers and storytellers, researchers and subject matter experts, and people with lived experience – to form new teams to tackle two important problems we face: Climate crisis and Inequality, Diversity and Inclusion. Impact Teams Lab introduces these participants to one another and helps them form transdisciplinary teams over mutual areas of concern. Then, over a 6-week period, the teams are guided on how to work together to develop a screen content project that will make a measurable impact. At the end of this period, lab participants will pitch their projects and impact measurement tools to networks, screen agencies and to impact investors for feedback and development funding.

December 2021 Update: Media Farm have started to design the coursework, and the plan for one of the two areas of focus (climate crisis). The plan is to run the courses from March 2022 to June 2022.

April 2022 Update: Media Farm have been gathering experts and course material but have not kicked off the course yet, due to the impacts on Media Farm and their collaborators of the flooding in Northern NSW earlier in 2022.
