(Re)-Collecting Europe is a new residency programme devised by the Goethe-Institut London, which will give two journalists the opportunity to travel through the UK for four weeks. 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 one week, followed by a three week journey through the UK. During their residency the selected journalists will realise their proposed project, the finalised project will be featured on the institute’s website and is expected to be concurrently published via other media outlets as agreed.
The Goethe-Institut London is delighted to announce Italian journalist Francesca De Benedetti and German journalist Christian Werthschulte as this year’s journalists-in-residence.The residency will take place from 15 March to 14 April 2019. The (Re)-Collecting Europe residency programme runs until 2021.
