We are an independent digital media outlet based in Kharkiv, Ukraine, and dedicated to covering social changes.

MANIFESTO
We have been developing the creative environment of Ukraine’s second largest city before the beginning of the full-out Russian war. Times have changed. We did, too.

Today we are the media focusing on social change in Kharkiv and Ukraine.
Designers, IT specialists, young entrepreneurs, activists, and artists are now defending Ukraine on the frontline, volunteering or propping up the economy with taxes. What is their future fate? Will they return home? What is next for society and industry?

Focus on fundamential human rights paves the way to social change.
One of such rights we ensure daily – access to accurate information . In the early days of the full-scale invasion, we launched a fact-checking bot called ‘PEREVIRKA’, which helps people to verify any news.

Our team complies with IFCN information verification policy standards.
Social change is thinking about the future. Since we have to rebuild Ukraine after the victory, we are concerned about what Kharkiv will be like. We object to the destruction of cultural monuments and should ensure that our heritage is restored and preserved.

Gwara Media embraces сonvergence journalism. To attract a wider audience, we create digital content, such as AR, short documentaries, interactive quizzes, photo and video stories.

We implement our manifesto through the following products: 1) Gwara Media digital media 2) Creative studio 3) ‘PEREVIRKA’ analyst team 4) Documentaries and reporting 5) Readers' community and KAVA MEDIA cafe.

Our reports and research capture a reality, local developments fuel change while feature stories help justice to prevail.
