EP76 - Biel Calderon & Non-profit Multimedia Storytelling

May 31, 2016

In this episode, we speak with a Bolton University Multimedia Journalism MA (immj-ma.org) graduate student. Biel Calderon - www.bielcalderon.com / @BielCalderon - works as a multimedia editor at Greenpeace in Bangkok. We discuss what it’s like going from journalism into the non-profit sector, some of the new trends and tools being used in non-profit communications and the increasingly blurred line between advocacy and journalism.
