Five 14ymedio Journalists Invited To A One-Year Course In Miami / 14ymedio
Posted on March 16, 2016
14ymedio, Havana, 15 March 2016 — Five 14ymedio journalists will
participate in a program organized by the International Center for
Journalists (ICFJ) in the United States, according to a statement
released Tuesday. Over the course of a year, the independent Cuban
writers will work in Miami media to learn techniques
of storytelling (narrative), multimedia and reporting on the new
direction of relations between the two countries and the impact on the
inhabitants of both shores.
This initiative, which is supported by a budget of $110,000 awarded by
the U.S. John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, “will enhance coverage
in both countries,” said ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan. “In particular,
Cuban journalists can improve their digital skills,” she added.
“The historic change in relations with the island offers a unique
opportunity for a valuable exchange between journalists and the creation
of a network of learning among peers,” says Shazna Nessa, director of
journalism for the Knight Foundation.
The Cuban journalists traveling to the United States will also
participate in the International Symposium on Online Journalism to be
held in April in Austin, Texas, organized by the Knight Center for
Journalism in the Americas.
The training will help 14ymedio to continue our mission to create and
promote a new independent journalism in Cuba. What we learn in Miami is
multiplied in Cuba, as we will impart that knowledge to the rest of the
team in the country and future generations who will join us in
developing 14ymedio. It will also be an opportunity to develop an active
collaboration with media in the United States and other countries.
