Join us in a discussion about cross-border journalism and listen to three journalists sharing their work!

If you want to know:

  • How to set up a remote team?
  • How do your research and fit in a place that is new?
  • What are the challenges of writing a story up with a diverse team of contributors?

Come and join us at Generator, Sofia for the upcoming speakers with our special guests:

  • Ludo Hekman of the Lighthouse Reports, the Netherlands: “Collective aim / Rigid structures / True dedication. The case of #EUArms”
  • Saska Cvetkovska from the Investigative Reporting Group in Macedonia: “Investigative reporting: The making off of a global movement
  • Simon Bowers, a UK based investigative journalist from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists: “Finding the right partners for your investigation. The case of Paradise Papers and the Implant Files.”

The talks are starting at 6 PM and will last 20 minutes each.

Afterward, we will have time for a Q&A session and some networking.

Before the meetup, two workshops will be taking place.
