At Polis Project, we are experimenting, learning, and inventing new
ways of presenting facts, research and analysis to a wider audience. We are figuring out how best to take knowledge to the streets, and in that process creating an informed and engaged community of citizens isn’t easy and we are looking for students to work with us.
