Not News At Ten

Poets, film-makers and fashion-designers present open-ended experiments in Creative Journalism.

For readers to be re-enchanted with the world, we have to go beyond zombie news…

  • Creative Journalism
  • Factual, Lyrical, Truthful
  •  As told by today’s media, the world we live in reads like a closed book.
  • Can it be re-opened, if journalism’s turned upside down?

Students and teachers from the University of East London are experimenting with new formats for the news. Tonight they present a series of news items told in various, different ways, including the News Poem.

These include:

Anthem for Lost Youth: a newspoem on knife and death in London.

Wearing The Story: clothes designed to tell stories other than your own.

Not News At 10: a lyrical-satirical remake of the TV news package.

The show will be a followed by an open discussion.

The event is part of an ongoing research project.
