The mission of the CENTNA Foundation and the educational work of the Center for Narrative Awareness is to support the evolution of a next generation media environment that cultivates a less divisive, safer, fairer and healthier society.
We provide education based on the belief that all of us as media consumers must cultivate an understanding of how cultural values are propogated through media to defend ourselves against the development of biases & prejudices through media we encounter.
We believe in developing creativity and skills to bring more points of view into media production.
And we work with those who fund media production – including advertisers – to cultivate their consideration of the long-term issues that may result from media strategies that support only short term profit-oriented goals.
Please check out our perspectives and ideas in our Narrative Awareness publication.
