Media 2012 Citizen Journalism Project

I’m heading down to Cornerhouse later today to find out about the Media 2012 Citizen Journalism project. This is focusing on the 2012 Olympics and Cultural Olympiad. Citizen Journalism Training follows tomorrow and it will be very interesting for me to see what is in store. To date my activities have mainly focussed on Community Reporting so I will be keen to see what their training has in addition to this and what the difference is. I’m just itching to get involved in a project right now!
