Doc Next Network is a unique movement of European media-makers, curators, researchers, producers, educators and entrepreneurs.

Doc Next Network strives for social justice and inclusive public opinion in Europe, through our common methodology that supports the idea of access, free culture and expanded education in which (digital) media plays a crucial role. What started as local activities of four organisations, now has transformed into one European methodology and practice.

Despite a growing acknowledgement of the importance of media-literacy as a tool for progress, we feel the need to provide additional education to – at least – the formal educational systems in which media is playing a role (ranging from secondary schools to film academies and communications faculties for instance). We believe there is a lack of understanding of how digital media in this era is challenging old values and shaping new value systems.

Media in this D-I-Y era, in which technologies are accessible and sharing of information on the internet is common, has to be acknowledged, understood and regarded for its huge potential for the arts and creativity, for the public debate and opinion making, and for cultural studies and societal critique. Making young people media-skilled and media-critical is what is needed in our societies, to be able to represent another, alternative imagery of what living in Europe means. It will help build European citizenship“.
