will serve as the main portal by which citizen journalists can connect with one another and contribute news coverage, opinion pieces, features, blogs, and more. The website will be interactive and dynamic, using the latest modes of communication including but not limited to audio and visual media, social media, and blogging. Website content will be driven by the contributions of bloggers throughout the region, and will include a wide spectrum of media, information, and exchange on social, political, religious, and cultural issues affecting the Middle East Region, and Arabs living in the diaspora. We will also support bloggers with tools, training, and mentorship to develop and refine their work and skills. Through partnerships with media organizations and production houses, we will also provide technological support to journalists in producing multi-media news.
