UCS Journalism seminar with Jon Kingsbury: May 1

We are pleased to welcome Jon Kingsbury, who directs the Creative Economy Innovation Programme at Nesta, to speak at our first large-scale journalism seminar. We’ll meet at noon on Wednesday, May 1 in Auditorium 4 at the Atrium Studios, UCS campus (map: southeast corner of West Building). Nesta, a London-based charity founded with Lottery money, awarded 10 grants to hyperlocal media projects last year and we look forward to learning what’s been learnt from that so far, and to starting a dialogue about hyperlocal journalism in Ipswich.

In other news, the Digital Freelancing & Features module is well in progress and we’ll be back later with news of the longform projects the students are working on.
