When we came across the Greek journalism platform Oikomedia our first thought was “Oh dear, that’s very similar to what we are doing.” As strong advocates of collaboration in journalism we decided to follow our own example and go for an embracement strategy. This lead to several meetings, a collaborative story about a Syrian band and most recently to programme placement at Tandem Europe in Milan and Leipzig.

We are excited to be working together with our Greek friends throughout the upcoming year on our shared mission to enable and encourage collaborative cross-border journalism.
