Tortoise Media is a brand new news organisation doing journalism differently. It does slow news, to cut through the digital noise. And it does open news - putting its members, experts and ordinary people at the heart of how it understand things.
Tortoise Media are coming to Newcastle six times over the course of 2020. To kick off it wants to know what you are interested in, what you want to hear in the news and what issues matter the most. You make the news. Go along to this free event and share your insight into the key issues you want to hear about on future visits to Newcastle.
Sign up on the eventbrite website for your free ticket.
