The Media Rumble
News is the fulcrum of the age we live in – it empowers, entertains, shapes opinion, and leads to innovations, conversations and legislations. In these digitally-charged times, news transcends geographies and makes itself available across platforms. It is seamless and yet definitive; it delineates and decodes while questioning defined boundaries, it is both rarefied and commonplace.
And still, it can be so much more or so much less. To find out where news can go, Newslaundry & Teamwork Arts come together for the second time to present The Media Rumble (TMR) on August 3rd and 4th at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
The inaugural edition of TMR in 2017 was a first-of-its kind coming together of news professionals and news enthusiasts in India, enabling many unheard voices from across the globe to be heard in the heart of New Delhi.
Once again, the three-sixty degrees of news: both traditional and new media will be discussed in a programme built around the pillars of news: content, technology, economy and policy. The second edition of TMR will be a specially-curated two-day forum with path-breaking speakers from across India and the world, featuring enlightening discussions, film screenings, talks, interviews and masterclasses.
