THE PEOPLE'S NEWSROOM

HOW DO WE BUILD A DIFFERENT KIND OF JOURNALISM? ONE THAT'S PEOPLE-POWERED, COLLABORATIVE AND COMMUNITY FIRST?

The People’s Newsroom supported nine people from across Wales to consider the implications of GALWAD as citizen journalists - producing journalism that reflects them, serves them and sparks positive change.

 

Our people’s newsroom journalists tell different stories in different ways. They’ve had little or no experience of journalism until 3 months ago, which means they aren’t weighed down by the habits, formulas and orthodoxies of traditional journalism. 

 

As a project, GALWAD explores how we might imagine the future we want, so we can start building it now. It makes sense then, that our People’s Newsroom should take exactly that approach to journalism - thinking differently about who makes the future and what it looks like.
