WIRES-CROSSED is a two-year KA2 Erasmus+ project that aims to build a community media framework that equips local communities with all the knowledge, skills and competences to develop, manage and maintain a comprehensive media service to local residents. Its main objective is to empower citizens and bring them together under a community media banner intent on promoting real news about their local community and area.

The project will pursue an asset-based community development approach to harness the assets within the local communities where partners are based and bring them together under a common community media banner intent or promoting real news about the local area to residents.

Over the course of the project, the implementing partners will develop a Community Audit Toolkit and Report documenting their local community’s media literacy that will then pave the way towards the production of a wide array of tools and resources to build their capacity in the field. These include:

  • Community Media Skills Development Resources
  • A Toolkit of Media Moderation Resources
  • An Induction Training for Adult & Community Educators
  • An online Interactive Learning Portal
