BCU and Meedan are excited to announce an inspiring and action-packed program for #CheckCon 2017 in Beirut!

#CheckCon is a 3-day event that brings together grassroots media collectives, digital technology enthusiasts, professional journalists, and media students & scholars from across the Arab region to reflect on the experiences, successes, challenges and lessons learnt since 2011.

Day One of #CheckCon is invite-only, but you can follow updates from our participants and student newsroom (more to come on this soon…) via the #CheckCon hashtag and the Meedan and BCU blogs.

Day Two of #CheckCon is an Unconference! Signups via our Eventbrite have closed, but you can ask a question or propose a session here! Not sure what an unconference is? BCU’s Jerome Turner has a great explainer.
