forviemedia: 2004 ~

Forviemedia mixes news, articles, polemic and photography - clicks of a mouse and shutter buttons at our fingertips, pivotal moments in time not wasted. Nothing is constant but change. News & Editorial and Links are refreshed daily, as is Pageviews - a parade of hits indexing popular sections, added images, updates, traffic flow, blogs, YouTube, channels and social media.

Site content reflects Scotland's progressive politics and grassroots level campaigning, highlighting 'red line issues' - primarily our Scottish affairs, the threat from climate change, international news, Green issues and Oil & Gas themes. Archived articles - many covering trending energy topics - are curated in Blogs, or accompany the relevant photos in the Galleries. We monitor media activism, portals and citizen journalism to publish previews, reviews and interviews - forceful views. We tackle urban and rural isolation, walks, Nature, renewables, pubs, (public) transport, planning controversies, Nordic affairs, land reform, nautical events, produce and products, welfare and human rights, trade union struggles, festivals, TV, demos, meetings, the war on the poor and the vulnerable, underdogs and dogs. Other posts focus on travel, sport, art and design, archaeology, drink, food, fishing, farming, comedy, heritage, history, science, music, cartoons, poetry, education, our NHS, housing matters, technology, exhibitions, literature, cinema and the stage.

Alongside providing a hub for musicians, writers and artists, this site incorporates Forviews, a library with 480 photographs spread over nine galleries. The slideshow > offers a glimpse into each gallery.
