Development Director

Juliana Ruhfus is the Development Director Dart Centre Europe. She is a multi-award winning filmmaker, presenter and executive producer specialised in investigative and current-affairs programming for global broadcasters. Juliana was selected as a Dart Centre Ochberg Fellow in 2012 and joined the board of trustees for the Dart Centre Europe shortly later. Amidst a growing mental health awareness in newsrooms Juliana sees research-based trauma-awareness as key to ensuring that not just media practitioners but also vulnerable contributors are treated with the necessary care and respect. Since April 2022 Juliana has been leading DCE's transition into a more decentralised European organisation with a growing number of fundable trauma and journalism programmes that reflect the changing news environment and the needs of journalists and media organisations.
