How to run your own media outlet in a not-so-rosy environment

Founders of young independent media platforms from the neighbourhood countries of the European Union will talk about the tricks and tips of trade, tackling the challenges of operating a media outlet in a tough reality. How do you get inspiration from a reality filled with challenges? How do you deal with the fear your website could be shut down at any minute? How do you survive clashes with the government? How do you handle death threats and find funding for your operations - when there is no hope left on the horizon? This practical workshop will provide you with a unique insight behind the scenes of media activism and ideas on how to keep up with the digital revolution and stay alive in restrictive, turbulent environments.
