The nonprofit model needs a rehaul. In this podcast, we discuss how this outdated model harms the practice of independent documentary storytelling and the people who tell these stories. We talk about the history of the mission statement and the ways organisations weaponise it to create difficult working conditions for their workers, eventually creating a very lopsided industry. While claiming to do just the opposite.
What does, then, accountability look like? Within a larger movement towards unionising all over the country, why are culture workers feeling the need for greater structure and transparency within this mission driven system that ticks all the woke boxes and yet fails its workers?
