Why Eefje was invited to TEDxEindhoven
Calling something fake news might already be old news. Then again, how we make sense of our reality through media, such as news, is ever changing. New forms of media allow us to tell us our stories in new ways and potentially reach millions or even billions of people. The way we convey our ideas through media technologies is becoming non-linear, interactive, multi-channel and (to use the latest term) transmedia. We’ve invited Eefje to speak on this changing landscape and give us some insight into how we might be telling our stories in the future.
What will Eefje speak about
Storytelling in the information age.
