Our Factual content investments will help us meet our three goals: Quality, Diverse and Discoverable content.
By Quality we mean:
By Diverse we mean:
By Discoverable we mean:
When we talk about diversity, we have some key audiences in mind. Not all factual content will be relevant, but here are some specific goals we will try to achieve.
We will help grow great New Zealanders by providing enriching local content for children that encourages imagination and curiosity.
We will ensure diverse content made for Pacific peoples in New Zealand is accessible, enjoyed and valued.
We will support valued content serving other ethnic populations in New Zealand that exceed 100,000. At this time these are Indian and Chinese New Zealanders. NB: funded access radio also provides options for both these and smaller populations.
We will support valued regional news and information, for communities of reasonable size, as content that national media can rarely provide.
We will support valued projects as opportunities permit including content that reflects diverse religious and ethical beliefs.
We will support valued stories about disability both to be inclusive and to provide insight for a general audience. We will make funding available for content to be made accessible for those with sight and hearing impairments.
