Another event of interest to everyone involved in digital storytelling

The Department of Journalism at Uclan is about to launch MELD

MELD is an ideas-generation and development workshop bringing together journalists and interactive designers to tell stories in ways we haven’t thought of yet

Selected journalists will be paid to join new media practitioners at a five-day residential lab. There they will learn the skills for success in the connected world

The lab will be held on 10-14 December in Preston

Teams will work on real briefs from Industry partners, including some from Simon Bucks, Associate Editor, Sky News Online with the resources to make the ideas into reality

This is a unique opportunity for freelance journalists and interaction designers based in the North of England
