🙉 “Content” is a boring word.
🙊 “Clicks” isn’t a relevant descriptor unless you’re still surfing the World Wide Web with a yellowed mouse.
🙈 And status quo “capitalism,” well, sucks.
These are a few “c” words that inform the ambitions of eves/wknds. We’re a grassroots media studio organizing at the forefront of culture, founded by queer editor and writer Jon Dale Shadel 🏳️🌈 who has worked with major media outlets enough to recognize the need for community-first solutions to the way we fund, produce and consume stories.
Our work currently centers on 3 significant areas, where we see opportunities to rewrite the rules from the bottom up:
✊ Building an ad-free, people-powered platform to empower an inclusive team of journalists and challenge the power dynamics in digital media;
✨ Consulting with forward-looking organizations shifting to sustainable models, breaking down hierarchies and expanding their sense of purpose;
💡 Experimenting with mediums and producing stories by independent voices, alternative artists and change agents.
Let’s start a conversation about what happens next. 🔮
