What is Prism?

We bring you thoughtful, persuasive articles anchored in experiences and expertise.
Published January 7, 2019

Since its launch in 2017, Prism has featured thought-provoking pieces that hoped to contribute to a healthier discourse around a wide array of topics.

With the ever-changing media landscape, in Pakistan and globally, we have strived to keep up with the challenge, which is why not only is our content constantly evolving but also the medium we produce it in.

We use the word ‘content’ because our work is not just limited to text pieces anymore; we will keep experimenting with new media and interactive elements to help improve our storytelling, while staying true to our principles of accuracy and unbiased reporting.

As we embark on this exciting journey, we invite you to come along as we go beyond the 'breaking' news and bring to you fresh perspectives from recognised voices and more importantly, those who struggle to make it to the mainstream.

We would like to thank our readers and writers for their positive engagement so far, as well as our colleagues and friends at Dawn for their support.

We are also grateful to the past editors and staff at Prism and its predecessor, the blogs desk, whose work we will strive to further build upon.
