“Don’t read me the news, tell me the story”

On 3 October 2020 the KAS Media Programme South East Europe organised the second edition of the “Adenauer Online Media Training”.

Journalism is a dynamic profession. Progressive developments within digital technologies are changing the consumption habits of media users and thus also the demands on the journalistic work. It is becoming more and more difficult to get and, above all, retain the attention of the audience. Storytelling is a core element of the journalistic work. “Every journalist, whether writing for print, television or digital media, should be a good storyteller”, explains Aleksandar Manasiev, trainer of the second edition of the “Adenauer Media Online Training”.

Inclusion in journalism as a basis for better understanding of minorities

As a journalist, how do I write ethically, without prejudice? How do media report on minorities? How do I tell touching stories? How do I recognise misinformation? All these questions and many more were discussed during the intercultural seminar "Media Incubator" in Sofia.

For the first time the KAS Media Programme South East Europe organised a workshop for journalists together with the Goethe Institute Bulgaria. It took place from September 28 to September 30 under the name "Media Incubator" and in further cooperation with the Bulgarian NGO "Trust for Social Achievement"
