Our Version Media CIC
Positive and authentic representation of black and marginalised communities
Founded by a broadcast journalist and community activist, Our Version Media CIC increases positive and authentic representation of black communities in the south by equipping people with digital media skills to tell their own stories.
This is increasing self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing of communities demonised by the press. They empower people with skills to shine a spotlight on their real stories, cultures, diversity, and resilience, tackling negative stereotypes at the same time. As an official media partner of Southampton's UK City of Culture 2025 Bid, they amplify stories from the city's diverse communities.
Their work also includes increasing representation of black communities in other areas of life: They run a Black-Owned Business Directory that supports Southampton's black business owners; they provide diversity and inclusion services to help public sector organisations to reach, engage with and improve their services for black communities.Our Version Media CIC website
