On-The-Ground Reporting Workshop with Mimi Mefo - #LastWordFestival 


The Roundhouse,
Chalk Farm Road,



Show Details

In this special one-off workshop, award-winning Cameroonian journalist Mimi Mefo will share her experiences about reporting in a local context.


Participants will explore the role of local journalism and discuss the skills and tools individual journalists need, including how to speak to different audiences, the role of social media in disseminating information, and the potential risks of being an active and engaged writer.

About Mimi Mefo

Mimi Mefo is currently writer-in-residence with English PEN, the founding centre of the international association of writers.

In September 2018, Mimi established her own independent news platform, Mimi Mefo Info, to provide audiences in Cameroon and beyond with up-to-date information about the situation on the ground, particularly on the violence and unrest in Cameroon’s western regions. Shortly afterwards, in November 2018, Mimi was arrested and imprisoned in relation to her reporting, but was released four days later thanks to unprecedented national and international support.

Venue Details

The Roundhouse,
Chalk Farm Road,

0844 482 8008

From modest Victorian beginnings – beginning life in 1846 as a steam-engine repair shed – to legendary cultural venue, the Roundhouse has an enviable heritage. The Grade II* listed building is now home to a bold and exciting programme of live music, theatre, dance, circus, installations and new media.

Young people are at the heart of everything we do. They're on our board and help plan and perform at our events. We offer a year-round schedule of creative projects for 11–25 year olds in 24 state-of-the-art studios, where facilities include TV, radio and music production, media suites and rehearsal rooms for music and performance.

It's the interaction between artists on stage and 11–25s that makes the Roundhouse unique. Young people have interviewed Paul McCartney for Roundhouse Radio, filmed a documentary on NoFit State circus, and worked with Apple to deliver live streaming of events. 

The Roundhouse is a charity and we can't survive on ticket sales alone. Income generated from private/corporate hire and from generous individuals, trusts, corporate sponsors and public funders helps us to raise the £3m we need each year towards our artistic programme and work with young people.
