Tortoise @ Tate - What's on your mind? - An open news meeting with the Tortoise editors
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, live Tortoise ThinkIns have been paused until April 14. Although some events have been cancelled, we are going ahead with as many as we can in a digital-only format. We're working to confirm plans for each event as quickly as we can and will publish details here in Eventbrite once they're confirmed. For more information, please write to us at
When it comes to open journalism, this is as authentic as it gets. Join the Tortoise editors' weekly news meeting where they thrash out an editorial perspective on live news stories. Does the story matter? What comes next? Should we respond and if so, how? The news really is what we all make it. Come into the newsroom and help us make it count.
All our ThinkIns are family friendly, but the Open News meeting is especially good for children and young people.
Our Tortoise editors include: James Harding, Editor and Co-founder, Tortoise
Matt d'Ancona, Polly Curtis, Chris Cook, David Taylor, Liz Moseley. Giles Whittell and Ceri Thomas, Editors and Partners, Tortoise
What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?
A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
Arrival from 1.30pm, starts promptly at 2pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!
We film our ThinkIns so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.
Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
