STORYWORKS AT CENTENNIAL COLLEGE

Centennial College Journalism students have contributed to the Global Summitry Project since 2018, including providing media coverage from T20 and G20 Summit meetings in Buenos Aires as well as the Global Solution Summit (GSS) from Berlin.

This program at The Story Arts Centre recognizes that ‘experience is everything’. In partnership with the Global Summitry Project (GSP) Storyworks provides chosen journalism students with ‘bite-sized’ industry experience. These students join GSP in its various global governance initiatives interviewing experts and providing background stories for the ongoing Projects.

Storyworks Interviews 2022

Due to the continuing pandemic, the Storyworks student journalists were unable to travel to any of the targeted Summits that the Global Summitry Project hoped to attend. Instead, this year we turned our attention to journalists and the growing threat to press freedom for journalists in a growing list of populist and authoritarian governments. As these interviews and videos show the threats are very real and threaten not just press freedom but democracy itself.

The following interviews are the results of these inquiries. A special thanks and shoutout goes to Professor Tim Doyle who heads up the Journalism Storyworks Project at Centennial College and who advised these student journalists. I am sure you will find these interviews revealing and valuable.
