The Future of Freelancing – Nordic Freelance Seminar
The Nordic Freelance Seminar will be held this year in Helsinki at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna island.
The seminar starts 15 September at 10.00 am and ends 16 September at 9 pm. There will be an extra program for participants who want to stay longer.
The theme of the seminar is the future: What kind of journalism will be done in the future, what sorts of platforms will be used, where will the money come from? What will be the role of freelancers, entrepreneurs in this changing situation? What kinds of new skills we should we learn? What is happening to the relationship between the media and the public? How should we react to rising populism, false media and hostility directed at journalists? How will entrepreneurial journalism fit together with journalistic ethics, what kind of problems we might face?
Registration begins on 2 May. Each participant is to register in person and pay the attendance fee at the same time. There is separate registration for the Jonas Bendiksen Portfolio Review, starting at the beginning of August.
The program is not final and there may be changes to it.
