New Ways of Doing Investigation: The Bristol Cable

The Bristol Cable is redefining local journalism through challenging multimedia investigations and features, community action and co-operative ownership. Online, in print and on the street.

In this session two of the co-founders, Adam Cantwell-Corn and Alon Aviram, told the story so far in the context of the decline in quality and availability of local journalism. The interactive session looked at the challenges that new media initiatives face; audience and network building, getting skilled up as citizen journalists, alternative organisational business models for public interest media and the feathers The Bristol Cable has ruffled!
