“The media coverage of cultural events”

Malta, 29 September – 3 October

Thanks to the cooperation with the Maltese public radio&TV PBS, a 4-day training workshop on cultural journalism was organised in Malta, from the 29 September to the 3 October. The training was attended by 11 young English-speaking journalists from RTVSH/Albania, GPB/Georgia, RAI/Italy, PBS/Malta, PBC/Palestine, Radio Romania, TVR/Romania and TRT/Turkey.
Three experts from COPEAM network - France24, PBS, TRT - were appointed to this initiative to accompany the participants during the course in reporting the cultural events and topics preliminarily identified by PBS and assigned to three different working groups.

After defining the format, organising and shooting the interviews around Malta, writing the news scripts, selecting useful archive images and music and editing the collected video material, the work of each group was gathered in two final journalistic items: a 9-minute TV news package and a radio feature, both in English, on the following events: the annual "Notte Bianca”, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the experimental dance performance “Mind Set”, with a stand-up connecting the different news.
