Time: 10:00 - 12:00
OPEN TO ALL - FREE FOR MEDIA CLUSTER MEMBERS.
Cross-border collaborations are the journalism of the future: they improve reach, they improve impact, and they can change the world. But actually doing them is difficult: people have different ways of working, different audiences, different needs, and different cultures. In this interactive workshop James Ball, the global editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and an ICIJ member, will lead a discussion on the practicalities of actually making collaboration across countries effective and enjoyable.
