Sustaining Journalism—32nd European Meeting of Cultural Journals

Eurozine’s network conference in 2024 will focus on sustaining independent cultural journalism in an increasingly difficult public sphere. As an industry, the cultural and community media spheres in Europe are affected by shifting public funding models, digitised markets, audience expectations, and political interference. Bringing together Eurozine’s network partners and cultural professionals, as well as local audiences, the conference will explore:

(a) ownership and labour in media; 

(b) public funding models in Europe; and 

(c) politics encroaching on independent cultural journalism.

We will discuss how these shifts in the cultural field are affecting both journalism and audiences in Europe. The conference will feature a keynote discussion and two panel discussions, as well as presentations from our partners in the Come Together Creative Europe Journalism Partnerships project. Internal sessions will allow network members and interested participants to workshop industry-specific questions and themes.
