This Place is Yours is a not-for-profit media project that will use the power of language, technology and storytelling to connect communities, open societies and create happier human beings.
The project encompasses an online magazine and a series of offline initiatives with an editorial vision designed to enhance mental health, social inclusion and social change. The heart of the project is a community-driven diary, where readers are encouraged to submit their personal narratives in written, podcast, video or artistic format (and these can even be submitted anonymously). The site will also include other stories to inform and inspire, spanning creative non-fiction, journalism and art.
The purpose of the site is to allow a space for people to express themselves and their pain, to experience the cathartic power of creativity, to connect with one another by having conversations that matter, and to be inspired by their own existence.
Offline, This Place is Yours will host events and workshops to facilitate a growth in face-to-face connection and community.
The broader goals of the project are to reduce stigma, foster empathy and acceptance, and provide people with the comfort that they are never alone.
