Fellowship

I participated in the inaugural Nikkei-FT fellowship programme in San Francisco, from March to May 2017. During the fellowship, I explored:

  • How can we create a need for news by igniting curiosity? How can we make the FT a place that sparks new enquiry, instead of one that just answers our readers questions?

  • How can journalism encourage exploration, particularly through the use of digital technologies including interactivity and rirtual reality?

  • How do we tell stories that create emotional understanding and empathy?

  • What does it mean for games to be journalism? Is interactive non-fiction an oxymoron?

I chronicled what I've learnt in this section. A good place to start is this post, where I lay out my case for why these are important questions.
