Masterclass | ARE WE EUROPE


Using Design Sprint Methodology for On-The-Ground Journalism | May 16th , 9AM – 17PM, UvA Mediastudies, Room 0.14

Are We Europe has created a new journalism format, based on an adaptation of the Google Design Sprint methodology often used in technical application building and other start-up development. We want to apply this to journalism: working with local on-the-ground journalists, designers and developers to create a new story within a week. In this masterclass we will do a short one-day version of this week-long sprint in order to give you an idea of what we can achieve throughout Europe with this new way of pop-up pan-European storytelling in journalism.

  • Anyone can take part. This masterclass is particularly interesting for journalist working crossed-disciplinary and aims specifically on young journalists and students.
    Students of UvA can attend for free (in possession of a conference ticket).
  • No special preparation or experience needed.
  • Max. 20 participants
