TODAY, the extended family of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism comes together for a night of fellowship, celebration, and remembrance of an adventure begun a quarter of a century ago that, by all appearances, shows no sign of ending.
Friends, fellows, partners, and colleagues of the PCIJ celebrate the 25th year of the Center’s founding by nine veteran journalists in 1989, amidst the turmoil of power failures, coup attempts, and the apparent failings of mainstream media to go beyond surface reporting.
The PCIJ celebration kicks off today, Friday, with a housewarming of the PCIJ’s new office at Matimtiman Street in Quezon City at four in the afternoon. This will be followed by a journalism conference at the nearby Sulo Hotel, where PCIJ’s founding Executive Director Sheila Coronel will speak about journalism in the age of digital and new media.
Follow us on this blog as we bring you updates on the day’s events, with a live stream of Coronel’s talk at six in the evening tonight.
