Ark Republic is a member-funded, advertisement-free media outlet providing 100% original multimedia coverage of under-explored, under-examined and under-reported stories.

Instead of a team of only journalists, the company is comprised of ARKITECTS, a collective of dope and brilliant people involved in a diverse range of industries who narrate, construct and converse in global dialogues and topics.

We examine the world through innovative storytelling techniques that they borrow, create, adapt and re-purpose; thus, this platform is highly experimental.


To sketch a new social constitution by telling stories that provide a platform for productive engagements.


For years, Dr. Kaia Niambi Shivers, a media scholar and writer, expressed disappointment and exhaustion of the looped cable news cycle offering limited coverage of the world.

With that notion, she thought that it was time to create a platform for profound voices with ideas that could switch the focus in global dialogue and within today’s media landscape.
