24 September OPENS Office, Laze Telečkog 2, Novi Sad

The purpose of OPENS Work Room of volunteers is to provide the space for volunteers and young activists to design activities for other young people.

On Tuesday, 24 September, we will hang out with volunteer Dušan Bogdanović who has come up with the workshop: “Web Journalism – Move the Community”.

The purpose of the workshop is to enable young people basic knowledge about web journalism and manners of interpreting online journalism. Also, the aspiration of the workshop is, apart from the basic knowledge, for the participants to gain practical experience of writing articles according to the strictly defined structure, and the best articles will be published at the web portal “Bor030”.

The participants will go through the basic terms of journalism, key words to which they should respond, and most common typos of journalists, as well as how to structure the wording and attract the attention of readers. Of course, through the workshop, young people will have the opportunity to identify the irregularities with certain wordings of famous websites and to discuss that (bad headings, click bait and non-content texts, relevance and reliability of what is written, etc.).

The applications are mandatory and will last until 23 September at 2 p.m. The selected participants will be sent the mail of the confirmation about the participation in the workshop on Tuesday, 24 September.
