Event description
The Race Beat is a network for people of colour, open to anyone working in, or interested in, journalism.

About this Event

This month we will be kindly hosted by Buzzfeed UK.

We will catching up and sharing experiences following the BBC's recent issue with Naga Munchetty. If you have anything you would like to 'workshop' with a group of people of colour, now is your chance. Maybe you have an issue at work, a story you want to develop with others or want to get some tips on getting your first paid commission.

The Race Beat is independent of any media organisation and open to all people of colour – experienced news reporters, citizen journalists, students, writers, freelancers, staff writers, broadcasters, media academics, aspiring columnists and critics. You don’t need to be a professional journalist to join us.

The meet up is a great a chance to get to know people of colour who are interested in the media. We will also be discussing our plans for an end of year event in London and starting to organise it.

This is a space for people of colour only. We welcome queer and trans people of colour and all other identities.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.

PLEASE NOTE: We will need to give the building's security staff the names of everyone attending. Please make sure you sign up via Eventbrite if you want to come.

About us

We want to create space for writers of colour to come together and begin to:

  • collaborate on race related stories and reporting projects on a wide range of subjects,
  • provide accessible spaces for regular discussion; on craft, on racism, on class, skills sharing, solutions,
  • build partnerships with small organisations fighting for better representation and supporting writers of colour,
  • strategise on ways to properly fund more quality journalism (comment, criticism, investigations) and race reporting by writers of colour.
