How to spot, develop and publish data-driven stories
Dealing with leaked or sensitive files could be risky if you don’t protect them (and your source) correctly. Learn about the tools used by the ICIJ team to produce the two major cross-border investigations of LuxLeaks and Swiss Leaks: from encrypting your email or your files to creating a secure forum to share ideas like you would on Facebook.
The workshop will cover the following points:
Everything is a remix, so steal like an artist. Datajournalist Winny de Jong thinks all ideas are new combinations of old elements. She uses the world as inspiration for new data visualizatoins. Simple doodles, art and the work of others provide inspiration, ideas and forms for new work. In this workshop she’ll explain how you can turn your world into inspiration and idea-fuel.
Data journalism is a very flexible approach to storytelling. The same dataset can be refined, filtered and explored from different perspectives and angles to run cross-borders investigations and publish them on multiple languages and media. The session will go through the processes involved in the development of collaborative data journalism projects. By showing how an existing cross-border investigation such as Generation E was developed, the participants will have an overview on how to manage and coordinate cross-borders investigations, from conceptualisation to co-publication.
