StoriesAsia is a collective of independent journalists from Asia, who infuse art in their journalism to produce passionately told stories for the collective’s own platforms and its partner media outlets. The journalists at StoriesAsia care about people whose concerns remain under- or misrepresented in mainstream media, and their mantra is to put a human face to news which is otherwise faceless numbers and tragedies. StoriesAsia aims to pioneer the narrative nonfiction genre, particularly in visual media, but also work across platforms and formats.
