Understanding and Reshaping Narratives about the North in Journalism

As the significance of the North increases, there is a need for a better understanding of its specificities and a more transparent communication among actors. The project aims at establishing a platform for exchanging and reshaping narrative practices among Russian and Swedish journalists to challenge dominant stereotypes about the Barents region and make it more visible in the media.

Through the medium of intensive workshops, the project will explore new ways of storytelling with an emphasis on images.
