A great student media organisation is for everyone. Student media should promote conversations, and provide a platform for people with different views, identities and lived experiences.
Freedom of speech, indeed, the power of speech, is that which amplifies the voices of the meek so that they can be heard alongside the mighty.
A large portion of ANU students relocate to Canberra to study, which means our community is extremely diverse. Woroni is funded by, created by and consumed by ANU students, and our mission is to produce print, radio and television content that truly reflects this community. This means supporting our regular contributors and those who are vocal on campus, as well as actively seeking out those who have been traditionally sidelined, or who need a boost of confidence to share their story.
This year, Woroni has included autonomous pull-outs in each of our print editions and have invited guest sub-editors to help with the sourcing and editing of this content. We have done this with the hope that in offering a welcoming space in our newspaper for students to share their voices – and often to interact with Woroni for the first time – they will have a positive experience and continue to contribute. Over time, we hope that this will build a culture of inclusivity and diversity within our pages.
This year, Woroni Radio has more shows than ever before, and broadcasts political opinions from both ends of the spectrum and everywhere in between. This year, Woroni Television has established itself as a source of innovative, creative and informative content.
We know that when you open our newspaper, tune into our radio broadcast, or watch our videos, that you might not agree with what you read, hear or see. Good. That is the point.
ANU – and the world – would be a boring place if everyone had the same opinions, identities and experiences.
Note: there is a line, and we do not hesitate to draw it. We do not approve content that is offensive or discriminatory.
We do, however, try to push students out of their comfort zones and expose them to the kaleidoscope of brilliantly contrasting identities, beliefs, political views and faiths held by those that they walk past in Union Court every day.
That is what we do. That is what we stand for.
