This new journalism residency invites two journalists – one UK-based and one from another European country – to investigate, question, debate and reflect on the impact of Brexit on the British civil society.
(Re)-Collecting Europe is a new residency programme devised by the Goethe-Institut London. It aims at fresh and emerging journalistic voices encouraging critical thinking and creative debate. Against the backdrop of the UK’s departure from the EU the journalists-in-residence will examine the social and cultural impact Brexit will have on the civil society in the UK.
This spring (Re)-Collecting Europe invites two journalists to stay at the Goethe-Institut London for 5 days, followed by a 3 week journey through the UK. A participation in a public event in London at the end of their stay will bring the residency to a close.
During their residency the selected journalists will realise their proposed project and participate in at least one public event sharing insights into their findings. The finalised project will be featured on the institute’s website and is expected to be concurrently published via other media outlets as agreed. In return, the Goethe-Institut London offers a fee, accommodation and travel budget.
The uniqueness of the residency programme lies in its format, the pairing of a UK-based and a Europe-based journalist and the overarching objective to generate a valuable documentation of the UK’s development in the aftermath of Brexit. The residency programme will run from 2019-2021.
The first residency will take place 15 March - 14 April 2019.
