A Stitched Focus Group event
co-hosted by the Ryerson Journalism Research Centre

Time: Thursday, December 13, 7-9 p.m.
Location: Room 223, Rogers Communications Centre.

Please RSVP to secure your spot!

Magazines have traditionally been the home for well written, researched and fact-checked long-form stories.

But what if that kind of journalism was performed before a live audience?

stitched! is a live journalism concept and current project for Sonya Fatah, assistant professor of Journalism at Ryerson University.

stitched! asked this supercourse team to take the basic editorial idea for a narrative story and turn it into a performed piece.

The team will be debuting its piece in late March 2019. In this focus group, they are inviting people in the areas of theatre performance and tech, event production, magazine journalism, and multimedia to see a small sample of the performance.

This night is your chance to see the first preview of the content, offer your insights, ask questions and contribute to the collaborative spirit of the project.

All are welcome! Refreshments will be provided.

The team includes:
Sonya Fatah – stitched! Founder, Assistant Professor at Ryerson School of Journalism


Ryerson University:
Qudisya Jabeen – RTA Media Production
Elizabeth Colleran – School of Performance
Adam Chen – Master of Journalism

London South Bank University:
Claudia Van-Nimwegen – BA Theater Technologies
Arthur Skinner – BA Theater Technologies

Ryerson grad students are doing some very cool work. But how often do you talk to peers in other faculties?

The Grads Gab is a chance to eat free food, learn what other students are doing, and talk to new people about new ideas.

The RJRC invites you to the first of its Lunch and Learn series on Thursday, October 25 at 12 p.m.

Bring your lunch and learn about some compelling new journalism research! The lunch and learn will take place in RCC 238AB, which is in the newly-opened Catalyst in the Rogers Communications Centre.

RJRC’s academic director Joyce Smith will be talking about her research: Healing and Headlines: The reporting of Indigenous spiritual practices during Canadian reconciliation inquiries. 
This research project looks at how reporting conveys aspects of Indigenous religious and spiritual practices, and suggests ways in which such coverage can act as a means of reconciliation itself.

Please join us!
