The Point Magazine Evaluation

etween 2013 and 2017, Multicultural NSW published 41 issues of The Point Magazine (thepointmagazine.com.au), including 324 stories on a wide range of issues covering local and international politics, religion, society, culture and technology. The Point Magazine aimed to provide accessible information, news and current affairs relating to violent extremism and its impacts on local communities in Australia, while also showcasing grassroots initiatives that are bringing communities together and promoting social cohesion. In November 2017, The Point Magazine reached a milestone of 100,000 readers and 200,000 page views.

In 2018 Horizon Research completed an independent evaluation of The Point Magazine. The study found that The Point Magazine is unique, highly regarded and valued, with 97% of the sample reporting a very positive/positive view of the project. The Point Magazine was valued for being a direct voice from the grassroots, authentic stories and different viewpoints. It is considered a valuable resource for government personnel, community and youth workers, educators and others, helping them understand and engage with communities and informing government policy, programs and initiatives.
