Journalism.co.uk and Google News Initiative have partnered again to offer 40 local journalists the opportunity to virtually attend the Newsrewired conference, taking place on 29 June – 2 July 2020.

Originally planned to take place on 4 June 2020 in Manchester, our event has been moved online due to covid-19. Before the pandemic, 200 digital journalists, publishers and communication professionals from around the world would gather thrice a year to discover the latest trends in digital media innovation.

This time, the four-day virtual event will feature talks and hands-on workshops, as well as two online training courses in creating engaging social content with your mobile phone; and sustainable revenue strategies for small, regional newsrooms.

The agenda will focus on reinventing journalistic work in ‘distributed newsrooms’; engaging audiences and building loyal community of readers; rethinking business models and exploring new, sustainable revenue streams; and reimagining what journalism will look like in the post-pandemic world.

But that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on access to top expert insights, learning practical skills, and network with other great minds. Better than that – a virtual event allows us to bring you all of this, wherever you are.
