Independent Media of Fresh Thinking

We’re building an independent media of fresh thinking for a new Scotland. Read our daily comment and analysis – our arts & cultural coverage – our analysis of media failure and triumph –  our international coverage – and much more. Read our regular columnists:

George Gunn writes his regular ‘From the Province of the Cat’ column taking a long view from Caithness
Mairi McFadyen writes from Inverness on highland and rural culture, climate change and much more
Layla-Roxanne Hill writes on (amongst other things) decolonialism, intersectional feminism and media democracy
Fiona MacIsaac writes our gaelic column from Uist – a native Gàidhlig speaker, she is interested in issues around language, culture, identity and land
George Kerevan writes weekly on the politics behind our changing economics and the hidden power behind big money.

Bella exists as a space for unheard voices and an interchange beyond the bubble and the silo of just talking to the people who already agree with you (which is a comforting but useless activity).

But we need your backing to sustain and expand this output. Bella is supported only by its readers. We don’t have corporate backers and we don’t take advertising. Please give whatever you can. Make a small monthly donation and support independent Scottish journalism. GO HERE TO SUPPORT US TODAY.

    And I wish you all the best in this venture. Bella has provided a wide range of article, almost all well written and most are challenging and seek to move the discourse on.
