Rethinking the Supply Chain for News

Monday, March 26, 2018 at 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm

The Bark Room, Room M104, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

Join Journalism+Design and Joe Germuska, aka “Chief Nerd” at Northwestern’s Knight Lab, for a hands-on workshop that wrestles with the systems behind the news. Container ships and computer systems have revolutionized the business of stuff from large (Amazon, Walmart) to small (Etsy, Adafruit) by reimagining the jobs to be done and dividing the work in new ways.

In this workshop, we’ll map the idea of “supply chain management” onto journalism and look for ways to think differently about systems for collecting, understanding, and distributing information.

Journalism + Design is an interdisciplinary program at The New School that merges design methodologies and systems thinking in an effort to untangle the complex problems of 21st century journalism. Through classes, workshops, and events, we seek to inspire journalists to imagine and implement what the future of journalism might look like. We are a place for playful experimentation, where new forms and unexpected strategies emerge.
