The Riot Act
The RiotACT is a digital regional news and opinion platform that creates and facilitates conversations about life in the Canberra region.
The RiotACT's dedication to the ACT community places them as one of the most trusted sources of information on life in the capital. More than one in three Canberrans visits the site at least once per month.
The RiotACT publishes engaging independent text, image and video journalism as well as thoughtful analysis from a team of respected contributors.
The RiotACT's readers and viewers are active participants, regularly submitting posts of their own for publication as well as having their say on the content published in a lively comment stream on the website and via social media.
The site was established in late 2000 to publish grass roots news, the opinion of the people and up to date information about the Canberra scene. “We’re aiming to expose Canberra to itself,” the founders wrote. “To demonstrate that community consultation can occur, and from the inside it’s a far more vibrant place than it looks from without.”
