Content development and delivery
News and current awareness resource
Promoting peaceful, civic activism
Indy collects issues-focused content and shares it to social media groups and pages. The intention is to provide a current awareness service and to present authentic narratives, (from a variety of angles), for self-negotiated discussion on pages and within groups.
Digital content development

Scottish Media Lab promotes positive action and discussion in support of authentic history and cultural diversity. History, archaeology, arts and cultural events are the mainstay of the page's content.
