After the successful launch of the UTS Centre for Media Transition with Jeff Jarvis and the UTS New Labs: Media – Creative Clusters program, we invite you to a workshop and lunch with De Correspondent’s Rob Wijnberg.
De Correspondent, based in the Netherlands, is harnessing the power of crowdfunding and sourcing to create new, constructive models for journalism, journalists and audiences. The model is proving so successful that The Correspondent is preparing to launch into the United States.
Wijnberg became the youngest editor-in-chief of a national daily newspaper in Europe when he headed nrc.next, the morning edition of leading Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad. With his outspoken views on the role of news in modern society, he has attracted a large following and that support helped him to put his ideas into practice in founding De Correspondent.
On the day, you bring your experience and reach; we bring the instigator and design concepts falling out of the Creative Cluster workshops. Together we'll begin the journey from concept to reality.
