Incubator for Independent Media

Building capacity for journalists from across Turkey

Our Incubator for Independent Media project works with local partners to provide opportunities for Turkish media professionals to develop their own projects, as well as building the capacity of media trainers, producing valuable learning resources and research into the media sector.

Building on our previous work in the region and our partnership with NewsLabTurkey, the three-year programme includes:
  • A 6-week Incubator training programme, running twice a year in both Istanbul and another region in Turkey to ensure maximum reach

  • 'Train the trainer' activities, including an annual London training week that strengthens the capacity of media education in Turkey

  • Regional academies, providing week-long training in different parts of Turkey

  • Research into the media landscape in Turkey

  • Educational digital content

    Just the chance to meet and ask questions to journalists and editors who are actively working at the Guardian was amazing.
