Social initiatives you haven’t heard of

SideWays is a documentary webseries presenting never-before-seen social initiatives through various multimedia episodes.

With SideWays, we want to showcase positive and original initiatives in which its leaders kickstart innovative approaches to solidarity, often involving an ingenious use of the web.

These can be seen as pioneering ideas or remedies to the current system, which fewer and fewer people relate to…

Each episode follows the same format:

A 5-minute, aesthetically polished video
a magazine-style multimedia article (with pictures and video)
a discussion forum,with the project leaders and the authors



SideWays is also a community of people: you are welcome to participate and collaborate on the project through the website. You can:

Suggest stories, comment on them and give your feedback
select the subjects
√ donate to the crowdfunding campaign for each episode
volunteer your skills to help the project grow
√ share the episodes

Whenever a new episode is online, a discussion forum allows you to speak directly with the protagonists of each initiative.

A travelling meeting space in our truck!


In order to make the most of our travels in the trucks for our different shoots, we decided to convert it into a travelling meeting space: a mobile, friendly space for discussions and exchanges.

What we want most during our village stops is to foster discussion. We want to bring in what we know and grow thanks to what is given to us. That is why we offer to anyone interested screenings followed by debates based on SideWays episodes as well as training sessions in our domains of expertise (photo, video, graphic design) at free-pricing.
