AboutUs
What and How
OurMission

Aidem Digital CIC is a user-led cultural sector organisation with deep links to the South Asian communities. We are committed to addressing access barriers and underrepresentation within the literary arts, media and journalism sectors, and to creating online and offline platforms to support the artistic and career development of creatives and artists from within these communities.

Created in 2008 and formalised in 2010, Aidem Digital is a social enterprise, as a Community Interest Company (CIC) we specialise in developing and deploying digital media projects that have a social impact.

Our mission statement is:

To provide quality led digital media services with social impact and create jobs and opportunities for the disadvantaged. Provide support for minority communities to experience, understand and create meaningful and ambitious art & journalism.

OurVision

Our vision is:

Equality of access to the arts, and equality of opportunity of careers in the arts & journalism for young people and minorities.

 

We achieve our mission and vision via our flagship projects ‘DESIblitz.com’ and ‘DESIblitz Arts’.

DESIblitz.com is an award-winning online British Asian lifestyle and news magazine which provides training and vocational opportunities to aspiring minority writers, journalists, photographers and filmmakers.  The website reaches 450,000+ users every month, primarily from British Asian communities and ¾ of which aged between 16 and 34 years.

DESIblitz Arts is the only West Midlands based organisation focused upon enhancing British Asian access to the literary arts and addressing minority underrepresentation in the UK publishing industry. This is achieved via our DESIblitz Arts Literature Festivals, community-based literary events and workshops, and utilising DESIblitz.com’s reach to provide an online space for aspiring writers to share and promote their work.

What isDigital Media?

A question that many may ask but few really know the answer to. From our perspective the answer is simple: ‘digital media’ is any form of media or presence produced with the aid of digital technology. This may be video, audio, a website, a PDF brochure, email marketing or use of social media to promote your brand.

Digital Strategy forBusiness

Aidem Digital with its vast experience of digital media and how to deploy it effectively, makes sure that it offers you the most suited digital media solutions that are most cost effective and without the loss of quality.

Social businesses today are evolving where the need for digital strategy is an important aspect of their brand and the way they communicate locally, nationally and globally. Aidem Digital works closely with social enterprises, charities, public and private sector people businesses who need specialist support to employ digital strategies and marketing for their business.

Aidem Digital has a very good understanding of the language and culture of ethnic minorities in the UK and has found this is a major asset to anyone looking for support to address digital strategy needs within these communities or outside of them. With this focus in mind, Aidem Digital has developed a team of cross-cultured individuals both locally and globally.

Skills and Development

With young and unemployed people finding it harder and harder to gain employment due to lack of skills, social status or experience, Aidem Digital offers such individuals the opportunity to join the organisation as volunteers and on work experience programmes.

With a special focus on youth, unemployed people and ethnic minorities interested in developing their digital media skills, Aidem Digital actively aims to create job opportunities for such groups.
