Journalism is currently undergoing a huge transition. Media organizations are under pressure and are aware of the need to distinguish themselves in order to attract an audience. At the same time, a new generation of creatives takes flight in the development of experimental media forms. What role can creatives play in rapidly changing journalism? What value can the use of design and art have in the journalism of tomorrow?
During Breaking News, we search for this value: we invite designers, journalists, artists, illustrators, image makers, tech innovators, developers and researchers for a record attempt in storytelling. Together we celebrate the richness of our profession and will search for innovative forms of journalism. We combine artistic and journalistic forces to seek and shift the boundaries of storytelling.
The event takes place at Pakhuis de Zwijger, where we work together on a collective front page. Each participant has literally one square meter available to tell his or her story. This can be done with image, text, podcast, video, collage, data, 3D, performance, digital media, art, audio. Participants are personally guided by the following artistic and journalistic experts:
- Anne-Marije Vendeville
Art Director at NRC Handelsblad & NRCNext

Professor of Mediastudies | University of Amsterdam
