JM Foundation launches a course in Citizen Journalism

JM Foundation for Excellence in Journalism has announced a teaching programme in citizen journalism. The ten-session module, across two months, will begin on August 1, 2010. This is designed as a certificate programme that would be conducted every weekend.

Eminent experts from the fields of policing, law, civic issues, Right to Information and technology would be engaged in the teaching programme.

JM Foundation, which was set up by senior journalists Shishir Joshi and Dr Aloke Thakore, is also known for Journalism Mentor, a mentorship-based post-graduate programme for ojurnalism, which was launched in 2009.

In a prepared statement, Joshi said, “We are launching the citizen journalism programme in Mumbai and we will be taking this programme to empower citizens to various cities across India.”

Thakore added, “The history of citizen journalism goes back to the pamphleteers, Tom Paine, the Federalist Papers and also the leaders of the freedom struggle in India. Technology has made dissemination relatively easy for citizen journalism. The crisis of public discourse on many of the issues facing the country begs for a revitalizing of this form of journalism.”

JM Foundation is a non-profit body, engaged in the field of journalism education, research and archiving.
