Week 8 Plan. The Press Room Project (Part I)

Filed under: Workshop plans — Tags: , , — olga @ 5:57 pm

OVERVIEW – The Press Room Project. Preparation day.

For the coming two weeks we will work on a team project we’ve called The Press Room. We will turn our workshop space into a journalists office and learn the dynamics of documenting an event and publishing it on the web.

The event we are going to document is the open doors day at St Mungos that will take place on the 25th of March.

Our objective today is to come up with a clear plan of how we will document the event and to have a go with some of the processes we will be using. Here is a plan of what will happen:
