The Prisma concept was born in late 2009 and crystallised on the 29th December of that year. It unites journalism with a similar dream born years ago in Colombia (South America).
The Prisma is concerned with analysis, research, criticism and debate, and seeks to provide information and opinions which are not always expressed in the mass media.
The Prisma was born in and works from its base in London, Great Britain. Without benefactors or employers, The Prisma is a truly independent publication and works to make a contribution to contemporary journalism, via the internet. It emerged in the middle of the crisis in order to confront it, aware of the obstacles it faced, but persisting with its unique face nevertheless.
The Prisma is produced by a team of professional journalists and experts, as well as young people who have just finished their journalism studies. The team also boasts photographers, translators, designers, columnists, assistants, writers and contributors from all over the world… A team of more than 130 volunteers.
The Prisma team is a fresh team, where people from all over the world have come together: Latin American, Spanish, British, French, German, Chinese, Pakistani, Czech, Caribbean, North American, Italian, African, Portuguese and German, among others…
The Prisma is a bilingual publication, it publishes in both Spanish and English, to bring together the speakers of these two languages in the United Kingdom. It works to create links between immigrants, Spanish speaking or otherwise, and natives of the UK.
The Prisma aims to demonstrate the vivacity of these cultures, their own identities and their own political, social and economic realities, both abroad and in the United Kingdom .
The Prisma is multicultural, conscious of the many languages that cannot be exercised in a world where English dominates. But it has made its first step towards being a multiple voice which speaks, is listened to, and makes its arguments.
The Prisma is a medium which relies on the support, solidarity and understanding of everyone and which opens, for the first time, a unique journalistic space in the United Kingdom.
The Prisma Works for the elimination of racial and cultural prejudices, and is committed to social justice and equality of opportunity. Our philosophy and our content promote and defend these values of the multicultural society of the UK, especially in the case of Latin Americans.
