News Club is a fortnightly discussion event that combines a panel of experts with an audience of local news-hounds to dissect the week’s stories and the media dynamics behind them, taking apart what has been reported and uncovering what has been left out.
Starting on 11 September in Brixton Library from 6-7.30pm, the News Club is joined by Kemi Alemoru from gal-dem magazine, author Alex Wheatle MBE, videoactivist Shaun Dey and Brixton Bugle editor, Linda Quinn. It’s free and you can register at EVENTBRITE.
Creative director Charlotte Knowles says: “News Club is an informal gathering that packs a political punch, so join us to chat about the stories that matter most to you – it’s a great way to get out of the social media bubble and challenge your perspective, helping you get to grips with the major international, national and local issues that shape our everyday lives.”
How it works:
- Find an interesting story you have read OR an in important issue that isn’t being covered by the papers, and send it to www.facebook.com/newspeeks or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Come to Brixton Library on 11 September at 6pm to join the discussion and get your head around the stories that matter most to you.
- Leave with a better understanding of local, national and international politics, and then come back two weeks later to do it again!
