We are an independent regional media about social changes from Kharkiv, Ukraine.

MANIFESTO
Gwara Media is Ukrainian independent media about social changes in/from Kharkiv.
We have been developing the creative ecosystem of Ukraine’s 2nd largest city before the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of our country. So times have changed, and we have to adapt.
We are currently the media about social change in Ukraine’s Kharkiv.
Designers, IT specialists, young entrepreneurs, activists, and artists now defend Ukraine at the frontline, volunteering or propping up the soldiers with donations. What is their future fate? Will they come back alive? What will happen to society and industry?
Нuman rights’ basis is the way to social change.
One of those rights we ensure every day is the right to get verified information. In the early days of the full-scale invasion, we created a fact-checking bot called ‘PEREVIRKA,’ which people may use to verify any news.
Our team complies with IFCN information verification policy standards.
Social changes mean thinking about the future since we have to rebuild Ukraine after the victory. We are concerned about what our city will be like. We are partial to the destruction of cultural monuments and should ensure that our heritage is restored and saved.
Gwara Media is dedicated to сonvergence journalism. To engage readers, we create a wide variety of digital content, such as AR, short documentaries, interactive quizzes, and photo-video stories.
We implement our manifesto through our products: 1) Gwara Media journal 2) Gwara Studio creative production 3) PEREVIRKA factcheck team 4) documentaries and reporting 5) our readers' community and KAVA MEDIA cafe.
Our reports and research capture a reality, local news sets a focus on development, and materials contribute to the restoration of fairness.
