Call for Conversations: Beyond the Media Cycle

Summer 2021

With a 24-hour news cycle, we are constantly alerted to new crises breaking out across the world. Yet complex events seize the world’s attention for mind-bogglingly short amounts of time, causing constant shifts in public consciousness. Even when the world has stopped paying attention–even after the media cycle moves to the next big event–the tragedies continue. While we are no longer seeing an onslaught of news on a daily basis, India is still facing an extreme Covid-19 surge, dynamics in Israel and Palestine remain lethal to civilians, and police in America continue to murder black people at alarming rates. 

The Responsibility Collective invites contributions to our current Call for Conversations: Beyond the Media Cycle. How do we continue to care and take action to address events that are no longer prevalent in the media? How does the loss of the media attention feel to those directly impacted by these tragedies and by those a million miles away? We invite you to join the conversation.
