In this last episode of the Romanian Media Matrix series, I collected three initiatives or efforts that try new ways of doing things. From new funding models, forms of association or community involvement, these examples of innovation show courage and temerity.
Ștefan Mako from Inclusiv will tell us about a journalistic project that managed to get a community of members to support them not just financially, but also with their expertise and their feedback; Cristina Guseth from Freedom House Romania talk about Press Hub, a network of independent local media outlets trying to bypass local pressure in order to survive financially, and Liana Ganea from Active Watch will tell us about Radio Civic, the first rural community radios in Romania.
