The project aims to look behind the scenes of fake news and misinformation by bringing together a diverse set of stakeholders in interactive video discussions.
The project will work with artists, scientists, media experts, politicians and the general public to analyse post-truth narratives and to co-develop micro mockumentaries for educational purposes. The technology proposed will create the world’s first threaded video discussions and an expanding online library of unique social video content about misinformation. By publicly exploring and exposing the making of fake news, partners facilitate awareness-raising of this subject.
Stakeholders from diverse backgrounds can come together to learn about and contribute to the collective knowledge of misinformation and disinformation. Powered by the artistic vision of Queenside Pictures, a library of short videos will be generated and provide reference points for constructive and civil debates about disinformation.
