Primary tabs

21 June 2019 -
10:00am to 12:00pm

This workshop will bring together voluntary and community sector organisations with public sector bodies and media professionals to share and improve understanding around how data and research can be used to support stories for successful media coverage.

With contributions from media editors and research experts, this session will look at how the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector can improve their impact and success when it comes to having research-based stories featured in local media.

Who is this for?

This workshop is aimed at people working in organisations that:

  • have experience in using stories based on research, data and surveys for media coverage
  • want to explore existing open data sources to underpin research and/or media contributions
  • produce national research and want to know how to tailor and localise for NI media

The event will be of particular interest to participants of NICVA's MediaConnect programme and those who have previously attended any of our #DataFriday events, but is open to all community, voluntary and social enterprise sector organisations.

What will be covered?

In this informal and open workshop we will discuss:

  • Standards and decision-making that editors apply to research and surveys
  • What journalists look for in a story, and what works well
  • How research-based stories can be improved for media and public consumption
  • Data sources and research methods
