Media Mamas’ mission is to support healthy families by using technology for self-expression, communication, and advocacy.
Media Mamas is the brainchild of moms who came together to find ways to document our unique experiences as parents. We think media can be used to build stronger connections to our families (both near and far), find creative outlets, and tell the stories that are central to our ever-changing lives. We are constantly finding new purposes for the media we create, from gift giving for grandparents, to educational tools for our children, to rainy day activities for the whole family. We want to share what we’ve learned with other parents, giving them the tools they need to become Media Mamas (and Papas!).
Our Mission & Beliefs:
We believe that new media can support healthier families through the following means:
- Allowing parents to reflect upon their parenting, to express their creativity, to break silence and isolation around parenting issues.
- Supporting families to document memories and to pass on traditions to future generations.
- Providing new media tools for groups and parents advocating for healthier family policies.
- Bridging “the digital divide” by putting new media tools in the hands traditionally underserved populations.
