Drishti: Media, Arts and Human Rights




About Us

DRISHTI uses media and the arts to build empowered communities that value self-expression and uphold human rights. We believe that community media has the power to revolutionize grassroot struggles and to promote sustainable change. We are actively working to build a media of the people, for the people and by the people in partnership with NGOs around India.

We stand in solidarity with local communities by bringing their voices together over the airwaves, featuring their stories and struggles in film, and advocating for their rights.

Our Vision: The future of media is locally generated content aimed at stimulating dialogue and inspiring change. Media should be OF the community, BY the community, and FOR the community.

Our Approach: 
We reject the notion that marginalized communities are powerless victims so we empower them to become agents of change through video, radio, and other art forms.
