Time Machine, reaching all audiences: a panel with public broadcasters

We are proud to present this special panel, where we will have a closer look at audiences, how they can be reached and which benefits can be gained by doing so. We will approach this topic from three different angles with the help of three different speakers.

Starting off Chantal Bernheim will bring a concrete case to the table, of how public broadcasters can benefit from such a collaboration, using Notre Dame as a focus.

Followed by an analysis about the importance of a collaboration across media, technology and different storytellers by Mike Matton.

Finally Grace Zakka will advance the topic in a political scale and discuss the importance of an international collaboration that goes beyond borders.

Join us on 10th of October 2019, 4.30PM at Deutsches Hygiene Museum Dresden!
