Project Description

The Citizens Assembly

Live Streaming deliberative democracy to a national and international audience…


In 2016 we had the privelege of live streaming and filming the Citizens Assembly on behalf of the Department of the Taoiseach.  This 18month project was an exercise in deliberative democracy, placing the citizen at the heart of important legal and policy issues facing Irish society. With the benefit of expert, impartial and factual advice the 100 citizen Members considered the topics below. Their conclusions formed the basis of a number of reports and recommendations that were submitted to the Houses of the Oireachtas for further debate by our elected representatives.

  • The Eighth amendment of the Constitution
  • How we best respond to the challenges and opportunities of an aging population
  • Fixed term parliaments
  • The manner in which referenda are held
  • How the state can make Ireland a leader in tackling climate change
  • A 4 x camera live vision mix + 4K Broadcast Quality production

  • Live streaming in 3 x languages.  English, Irish and Irish Sign Language (on multiple channels)

  • Live streaming to the national broadcaster – the RTE News Now channel + National newspapers (Irish Times, Independent,


We captured expert, impartial and factual testimony from key speakers and relayed this to a live audience on Facebook, Twitter and via a dedicated website.

We also provided a mixed feed for satellite news trucks and helped reporters from Holland, Ireland, UK, Germany, Japan, USA capture unique content.

Our work was streamed live to every home in Ireland via the RTE News Now Channel.   We supplied the offical ‘pool feed’ for all news broadcasters.   A truly fascinating project to be involved with.
