About this event

We invite you to join us in-place on May 14-15 for the 2020 Collaborative Journalism Summit. Please note: all presentations will be in Eastern Standard Time zone.

This year's Summit will be conducted fully online—tickets are free, and you'll just need a device and Internet access to participate! You'll be treated to two days of panels, lightning talks, workshops, and discussions about a wide array of #collaborativej topics and projects.

This year's Summit will kick off on Thursday, May 14, with a morning 'Share + Learn' event with the Charlotte Journalism Collaborative, and an early afternoon workshop designed to help you build and improve your collaborative reporting efforts.

All Summit attendees will then convene (digitally) in the late afternoon that day for a conversation about all the collaboration happening in North Carolina's news ecosystem.

We'll reconvene online Friday for a full (and jam-packed!) day of keynote presentations, group discussions, and of course, rounds of our popular lightning talks. Note that we're not kidding when we say jam-packed; the Summit is designed to be a very fast-paced event that's full to the brim. You've been warned!

We'll be adding speakers and more information about the Summit to this page and the main conference schedule page in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back and keep an eye on collaborativejournalism.org/summit for more!

Information about the two Thursday optional events are below.

About the Share + Learn event add-on

[SOLD OUT] Thursday, May 14, 9:00 a.m. EST

Join us for a morning of sharing and learning with members of this unique collaborative. This event is hosted by the Charlotte Journalism Collaborative, Solutions Journalism Network and the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University through the Peer Learning + Collaboration Fund.

The Charlotte Journalism Collaborative, a solutions journalism-focused initiative, is turning a year old and has learned a lot about what works — and what doesn't — when newsrooms band together.

The session will include a deep-dive into how the CJC got started, how it works, what its members have learned, and what's next for the cooperative.

About the collaborative journalism workshop add-on

[SOLD OUT] Thursday, May 14, 11:00 a.m. EST

Do you have an idea for a collaborative project but need some feedback? Are you struggling to structure your collaboration? Are you already neck-deep in a project and need some help improving it?

This workshop will be dedicated to solving those issues and more. The session will be facilitated by Heather Bryant of Project Facet, will be geared toward people who want to workshop their prospective or current collaborative efforts.

All registrants will be surveyed prior to the event and the agenda will be shaped in accordance to what you want to specifically focus on. Heather will be prepared to lead interactive conversations about designing and structuring projects, finding partners, collaborating with non-news entities, budgeting, workflow and more. You will leave the workshop having made some decisions or progress toward making decisions that will move your project forward.

Thanks to our sponsors!
