Collaboration and sharing information are key components of the digital era. While there is a long tradition of academic and activist partnerships, journalists and documentary filmmakers are often in the mix now. In this chapter, we discuss a few recent cases of academic-activist-journalist partnerships and sketch possibilities for social change and knowledge production when people from the media, the academy, and activist communities to come together to share knowledge, experience, common perspectives, and skills.

Keywords:   the digital era, sharing information, activist communities, activist partnerships, knowledge production
