Freelance journalists from all across the world came together for the Freelance journalism empowerment conference 2021 to gain new skills, create meaningful connections and celebrate the power of the community to make a difference.
The Assembly is a free programme offering online events, pitching and safety sessions, pitching rounds, resources and a community matchmaker.
It is a project by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The website offers access to several resources, such as online training sessions designed to build skills and provide the members of the Assembly with practical tools, one-on-one mentorship activities and online unconferences, i.e. participant-driven meetings where freelancers can connect and exchange knowledge, experiences and ideas.
