Tactical Media Room was founded in late February 2022 after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Its main focus is the question of how to support tactical media and independent journalists, newsrooms and civic initiatives from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.
In TMR’s first public programme, we’ll dive into the current (dis)information landscape.

About Tactical Media Room
The Tactical Media Room (TMR) is an initiative of Waag Futurelab and Institute for Network Cultures (HvA). It was founded in late February 2022 after the Russian invasion in Ukraine. In collaboration with hackers, artists, designers and researchers in the Netherlands, TMR aims to support independent tactical media, journalists, newsrooms and civic initiatives from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.
As a temporary Amsterdam-based platform, TMR brings together different forms of expertise in the fields of journalism, media activism, arts, and research. A group of currently fourty members addresses topics and activities that vary from Russian disinformation, censorship and propaganda research to mapping platform geopolitics, support regarding hardware and online services by ISP’s and hosting providers, tech knowledge exchanges (from satellite phones to cyber security), and practical aid support.
