Free Portsmouth Power Mapping Workshop

7 Jul

P1000018

What do we really know about our elected representatives in Portsmouth? What are their interests, activities, attitudes and intentions? How are they accountable to voters? What connections do they have to external organisations? What connections do they have to each other?

In this eye-opening free workshop, you’ll learn power mapping to answer such questions and help you analyse/visualise data in fascinating new ways. An expert team, including a trainer with the Centre for Investigative journalism, locally-based journalists, academics and researchers, will teach you relevant investigative procedures and tutor you in specialist software.

There are only limited places so you’ll need to book one fast here.

#ReclaimTheNews: Apply for Our Free Local Journalism Course

19 Feb

Star & Crescent has partnered up with the Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) to offer 12 local residents a FREE place on a 10-week local journalism course worth £100s and based here in Portsmouth.

Are you ever disappointed by local news coverage? Do you feel like there’s more to a story than a few hundred words in the local paper? Have you ever wished there was something you could DO about it?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then we’ve got some great news for you and it’s called #ReclaimTheNews, a new training course coming to Portsmouth in April 2018.

What is the #ReclaimTheNews course?

This spring, the Star & Crescent team are joining forces with the Centre for Community Journalism to teach 12 Portsmouth residents the fundamental skills needed to deliver high quality, investigative local journalism that makes a real difference to our communities.

From April, the S&C team will be joined by national experts and journalists over 10 weeks to train participants in a range of areas relating to investigative and community journalism. Alongside their training each week, participants will be supported and mentored to write at least one story for publication on S&C from July 2018.

Participants will be invited to remain with S&C after their training as part of our new Community Reporting Team.
