The Dart Centre Europe organises bi-monthly get-togethers for our UK / Europe network. These events are by invitation only, for journalists who are fellows or who have attended a DCE retreat.
The speakers are mostly practicing journalists, who discuss how their work or fields of expertise are relevant to trauma-aware journalism. The second half of the evening is dedicated to socialising, catching up with Dart affiliated journalists and meeting new network members.
Chatham House rules apply at these events to enable sharing of experiences, which is also why we keep them relatively exclusive to our network members. They are encouraged to bring interested colleagues but we ask that they need to register them with us first.
If you are interested to find out more, please contact our DCE Program Manager Jeanny Gering - [email protected]
The event starts from 6:30pm, the talk and discussion starts at 7pm.
This time Rossalyn Warren will be our speaker, Dart Center Ochberg Fellow and Freelance Reporter. Our conversation will be about the difficulty of covering personal trauma and the complications, challenges but also rewards that can bring. How does it influence our reporting and interviewing skills when we are personally affected by the topic of our investigation? What kind of self-care practices are helpful while we navigate personally distressing themes in our reporting?
