The Freelance Journalism Assembly was born in 2020 to empower and connect the freelance community in Europe. The programme is run by the European Journalism Centre with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In 2020, the Assembly brought together more than 1.700 freelance journalists from 47 countries through 13 training sessions and more than 180 mentorships that provided the freelance community with tools and skills to improve their coverage.
Collaboration is the overarching topic of the Assembly. In that spirit, the EJC is joining forces with other organisations that support freelancers across Europe. We are proud of a growing list of partners who have joined our Assembly network. Together, we created a growing movement that is empowering the freelance community in Europe.
