Decolonizing the Newsroom: public program

Decolonizing the Newsroom encounter gathered communities struggling for more inclusive representations of migrants and refugees in the European media sphere.

Community media journalists and creators, mainstream media and also freelance journalists, antiracist organisations and movements, artists, and researchers gathered to network, explore and develop tools and methods that give an answer to the challenges identified during the event in relation both to the representation of migrants in European media and to the conditions in which these representations are perpetuated by the functioning of newsrooms and mainstream media in general.
