Pop-Up Newsroom awarded RJI “Institutional” Fellowship
Meedan is pleased to announce that Pop-Up Newsroom has been awarded a prestigious Reynolds Journalism Institute “Institutional” Fellowship. Pop-Up Newsroom was co-founded in 2017 as a partnership between Dig Deeper Media and Meedan to support collaborative newsroom innovation across editorial and technology. Fergus Bell (DigDeeper Media) and Tom Trewinnard (Meedan’s Director of Programs) will work together to research and develop a “Pop-Up Newsroom Playbook” to guide newsrooms in collaborative digital newsgathering in breaking news situations, such as natural disasters, mass protests and terror attacks.
We’re extremely honoured that Tom will be a part of the RJI fellowship program and look forward to publishing more about the project in the coming months.
