New and creative forms of journalism for hybrid democracy

13 October 2022 @ 11:30 - 12:45

Journalism is vital to democracy, yet within hybrid democracies traditional journalistic methods might not be sufficient. Hossein Derakhshan claims that we should move towards post-news journalism, employing narrative formats to engage people. This session explores what journalists can learn from creatives. Derakhshan will set the stage with a talk about post-news journalism, after which he will join the other three panelists in a discussion with the audience. A session with:

  • Hossein Derakhshan – Iranian-Canadian writer and researcher, and a pioneer of blogging, podcasts and tech journalism in Iran.
  • Noortje van Eekelen – founder of ACED, an interdisciplinary platform for design, art and journalism.
  • Jake Blok – founder of Digital Rights House Amsterdam
  • Marloes Geboers – researcher and lecturer Strong Stories at AUAS
