On Saturday May 18th, 2013, from 12pm – 4pm, Columbia Journalism School hosted its second Innovation Showcase, a public open house designed to introduce the larger community to the original and innovative reporting and publishing work being done at the school.
Dozens of works across all forms of media were on view, and project creators were on hand to discuss their work.
For a preview of some of the pieces that were on view and some background on their development, please follow the links below. Each project is accompanied by a brief “How it’s made” video that describes the unique journalistic process which gave rise to the piece. To see the final projects and meet the creators in person, please join us on the 18th!
