A recap: Designalism Newsroom
developing experimental media productions for a varied audience(s) at Beeld en Geluid
In 2022, we hosted a new and extensive program, called: Designalism Newsroom. At this 'newsroom of the future' at Beeld en Geluid, 18 designers, artists and journalists collaborated on current issues provided by our partners in this program: Pointer (KRO-NCRV), de Volkskrant and NOS.
Designalism Newsroom is a program that encourages promising 'designalists' to develop experimental media productions for a varied audience. Participants worked intensively together to create special narrative formats to achieve a better understanding of current events and to appeal to new audiences.
Talents Charmaine de Heij, Chris Congleton, Eef Veldkamp, Fenna Wenselaar, Fien Leeflang, Geart van der Pol, Jonathan Tang, Jonathan Tjien Fooh, Luis Anibal Villegas Hernandez, Marije Rooze, Michelle de Gruijl, Nina Bogosavac, Noor de Kort, Pascal Bakker, Saskia Pouwels, Thomas de Beus, Wendy van der Waal and Zhizhong Keene have been selected to join Designalism Newsroom.
Experts Alice Wong, Daniëlle Arets, Klasien van de Zandschulp, Tamara Witschge, Janice Deul, Yuri Veerman, Richard Vijgen, Taco Stolk, Stijn Postema, Geesje van Haren, Peter van der Putten and Selby Gildemacher offered lectures, workshops and advice.
The results emerging from Designalism Newsroom were presented at a closing public event on July 8, 2022. Pulitzer Prize winner Alison Killing was invited to talk about her work at the intersection of design, architecture and journalism.
Designalism Newsroom is an initiative of ACED in collaboration with Beeld en Geluid Den Haag, Pointer (KRO – NCRV), Volkskrant and NOS. The program is supported by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and Pictoright Fonds.
