[img_assist|nid=346|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=18]Kotomedia is a project on media produced by and for the immigrants.

 

Organisations

Finnish immigrants are not represented in mainstream media, neither as viewers nor as producers. In our view, local open channels present a new opportunity for multicultural, multi-lingual media production in Finland. In 2010, this work is carried out in the Kotomedia project - media produced by and for the immigrants.

Stadi.TV

The concept has been planned in 2008-09 within a coalition formed by Forum Virium Helsinki, Arcada Polytechnic and m-cult, with public and private partners such as Elisa, Helsinki city communications. For the development phase 2010-13, the project has been supported the Helsinki city Innovation fund.

The new channel was launched in 2010 and presented 24-hour programming on the net and digital cable in the Helsinki region. Starting from 2013, the channel is net-based at Stadi.TV.
