You can now visit The Renaissance Project directly at Renaissance.prismcollaborative.com.
The Renaissance Project, the revolutionary hip-hop and rap publication started by the PRISM Collaborative, is now in its second year of operating. Up until this point, The Renaissance has published via the website Medium since its inception, where the indie media site has earned over hundreds of views a month on average. After reaching 1,000 views in its first few months, we were able to reach north of 1,000 in less than a month during October 2020.
Now, to continue that success and maximize our reach, we have expanded to make The Renaissance available beyond one website. That’s why we have created an external homepage at our new website, Renaissance.Prismcollaborative.com, self-hosted via Tumblr and the PRISM Collaborative domain. Content will still be published via Medium, but content will cross-post to the external website, and the publication will become more accessible to all of our readers and music fans that may come across us. Posts to the new site can also be found entirely via Tumblr, optimally by visiting therenproj.tumblr.com or www.tumblr.com/blog/therenproj.
This is the most vital addition to our already existing infrastructure as an independent, self-started, non-mainstream journalism entity in a volatile media industry. In addition to our publication home at Medium.com/The-Renaissance, we make ourselves available to fans via social media, (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and now Tumblr), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), our weekly “The Renaissance Rundown” newsletter, here on the PRISM website, and RSS.
Alongside the launch of our new external website, The Renaissance has also made itself available as a publication on Flipboard, a news & media aggregator that shares and collates new posts for easier consumption for readers. Our stories could already be found on the application, but they can be followed now in one space as a “Flipboard magazine” as well.
These are the latest of exciting changes coming to The Renaissance, launched in July 2019 by PRISM Collaborative members. Juwan J. Holmes remains the Editorial Revolutionary-in-Charge, and Paul K. Barnes remains the Lieutenant of Editorial Affairs. It was recently announced that two new writers, Kyle B. Denis and Allahna Stevie, would join The Renaissance in a contributor capacity.
