Journalism, web and networks: Ulysse 2.0

January 5, 2011

As from 28 February 2011, CFI is launching the Ulysse 2.0 project, focussing on journalism and Internet, in association with the ESJ Montpellier and Moroccan TV channel 2M, under the aegis of the COPEAM.

This project caters to young journalists from broadcasting from broadcasting members of the Permanent Conference of Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators (COPEAM) and the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU).
13 young journalists, from Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Algeria, Turkey, Jordan, Romania and Croatia, will be participating in the workshops in Montpellier, ( 28 February to 5 March 2011) and in Casablanca (21 to 26 March 2011).

Ulysse 2.0 has been set up as two sessions: first a presentation of the issues, platforms and means of production of news content, followed by a hands-on session on the production of content for multimedia.

Via the setup of an intercultural multimedia newsroom, the workshops will be giving participants an opportunity to factor new ways of processing information ushered in by the Internet into how they practise journalism and gain an oversight of multiplatform journalism.

Marco Nassivera, Chief Editor at Arte, will be supervising the work. He will also be handling the setup of a multimedia platform for content produced at the Casablanca workshop, to be held on the premises of 2M TV.
