Sharing Voices. Bringing People Together
We have many ambitions. Four of them are particularly important to us.
We draw attention to the differences and similarities of the region and aim in the long run to overcome disparities within and between the countries.
Strengthening women’s voices
We want to encourage topics that affect women. Therefore, Aswatona is a platform that promotes women’s voices to support their personal and professional development.
Safe Space for Exchange
We support a culture of public information and discussion, which leads to a more inclusive, stable, and equal society. We want to listen to each other and exchange our experiences and visions concerning global and regional challenges in different societies.
We want to reach a diverse audience all over the world and question our patterns of thought. We publish in three languages to encourage transnational communication and establish a sustainable transnational network.
Aswatona Podcast Production
Key themes are the topics of gender and podcasting. The topics of environment and power dynamics are analyzed from a feminist perspective.
Podcast, a tool to create a community
Easy access, high potential, and a great impact, especially on the young generation – that’s what we think about podcasting. Furthermore, podcasts can provide a platform for marginalized communities to be heard and create a space for discussions and perspectives that are often underrepresented in mainstream media. Additionally, podcasts can be easily shared and distributed online, amplifying the reach and impact of activism efforts.

What People Say About Us
A workshop in audio editing? A session on monetizing podcasts? Training in interview skills? – Ahead of the workshops, we ask our participants about their interests and what skill training they appreciate. We ask our participants and partners regularly for feedback. This gives us the opportunity to adapt the contents according to our participants’ essentials. Our aim is to provide support where it is really needed and to deal with criticism in an open and transparent way. Here are some quotes of our participants’ opinions after the first online workshop in March 2021
