Creative Collaborations in Digital Media - MacArthur Foundation [Sponsored Session]

Do more with less has become the standard mantra in today’s newsrooms, which face dwindling resources but increased pressure to provide their audiences rich, engaging multimedia content. Meanwhile, freelance journalists committed to exploring underreported international issues struggle to support their careers and find a home for their reporting. That’s sparked creative collaborations like the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting’s recently launched Catalyst Fund, which aims to foster strategic partnerships with major news outlets to support work by freelance multimedia journalists on important global issues. Panelists will discuss this example as well as other creative multimedia collaborations within and across organizations, and crowdsourcing projects examined in a newly released report by the MIT Open Documentary Lab, Mapping the Intersection of Two Cultures: Interactive Documentary and Digital Journalism.
