The Dissonance is a public media and activism project. The initiative is grounded in collaboration and action as we aim to amplify and connect existing voices within and around the Hudson Valley. In addition to this, we seek to inform and familiarize the community with both local and national issues, as well as make civic processes more accessible to the community by providing spaces for dialogue and education. The initiative is dedicated to establishing itself as a creator of bases for communication and platforms for change.
