Abstract

In this article, we develop the Stepping into Visibility Model, mapping out the visibility journeys of mediactivists from Global South countries. Drawing from digital ethnographic observations and in-depth interviews, we apply the model to two case studies: a) activists in a Brazilian favela and their use of social media for protection against police violence (Maré Vive) and b) a Kenyan photographer who produces images of Nairobi at night to discuss social anxiety themes (Msingi Sasis). The study provides a theoretical discussion on mediactivism and analyses the multiple facets entailed in the concept of “visibility. We hope to offer a contribution to activists from marginalised communities by helping them become stronger when stepping into negative unintended visibility
