Talk show about citizen journalism kickstarted media festival

What's the status on today’s citizen journalism? And what are the potential consequences of writers trying to push a particular narrative? In order to explore these questions, the organizers behind The Festival arranged a talk show in Malmö Folkets Park on September 2, 2018.
Talk show speakers
Ramy Essam, Afrah Nasser and Andreas Mattsson participated in the talk show.

Andreas Mattsson participated in the talk show that was hosted by journalist and behavior analyst Amal Aziz.

Speakers:

  • Afrah Nasser – Multi-award-winning Yemeni freelance journalist and blogger focusing on human rights violations.

– I am thrilled to take part in this year's The Festival gathering and be part of a media community that cares about making connections across the world between press freedom advocates, media academics, journalists, citizen journalists & activists. As a journalist in the "fake news" era, my job is to challenge propaganda tools in the world – and I know The Festival is a great place to share that message in.

  • Ramy Essam  – Egyptian musician who became internationally known for his controversial music and performances during the Egyptian revolution in 2011. He has since been a global symbol of social activism for human rights, gender equality and freedom of speech.

– People always has thoughts and wishes and dreams and words in their head. Music is the tool that will turn any of these thoughts or wishes into action.

  • Andreas Mattsson – Program director at the School of Journalism (Lund University) and freelance journalist. Over the past years, he has initiated several projects aiming to create diversity within the media landscape.

– Since I believe diversity is a must, in the society, in the culture and in the media, I do think that The Festival is a great place to hang-out and broaden the ideas by learning from each other. I am excited to be part of this talkshow where it seems that all of us think that diversity must be practiced, and not only spoken about. I think that is a great starting point for a very fruitful hour together.
