The OICD dissemination program aims to bring key scientific insights on culture and identity to the general public through educational content delivered in accessible formats.

The program supports the following OICD mission objects:
(1) to ensure that the broadest range of cultural affiliations and identities are made available in the most accessible formats.
(2) To counter false assumptions about human diversity, culture and identity, particularly those that contribute to the re-enforcement of fixed/singular identities.

The content delivery of the dissemination program differs from the EMIC (Engagement Methodology of Identities in Conflict) Program content in that, in principle, its content is not built from culturally-coded imagery or EMIC-based strategies nor is delivered to precisely defined audiences. By contrast to EMIC Programming, content delivered through this program can use conventional educational formats and does not require high-level customization for specific populations (although low-level customization is likely to be required).

The program currently focuses on building content and delivery to young people and adults through the following channels:

Young People

1. Teachers, youth workers and parents
2. Technology device applications
3. Online video and social networks


1. Popular “Personal Development” literature, courses and digital applications
2. Public theatrical lectures and online content
3. “Magazine” style podcast, video and online content


It is expected that these demographics, segments and channels have significant capacity for overlap and cross-promotion. There is also capacity to expand channels in response to ongoing research and initiative development.
