The People’s Newsroom Initiative

We discussed how we can use journalism to help build power for people who’ve historically been marginalised by the media, and stimulate a healthier and more representative journalism ecosystem

We’re piloting this work in collaboration with EYSTLankelly Chase and Clwstwr – by designing and creating a new, community-based newsroom in Swansea that will inform and inspire a programme to be rolled out across the UK next year.

We were joined by:

  • Shazia Ali – EYST Project Worker, “Telling Our Own Stories”

  • Rhiannon Davies – Founder, Greater Govanhill Community Magazine

  • Dr Francesca Sobande – Clwstwr Co-Investigator and Lecturer in Digital Media Studies, JOMEC at Cardiff University

  • The Director of Bureau Local, Megan Lucero
