BIOGRAPHIES DES MENTORS 

 

ANGIE LANDRY

À propos: Depuis 2019, je suis coordonnatrice-édimestre de la section Arts du site web de Radio-Canada et ma mission consiste à créer des ponts entre les différents acteurs culturels de toutes les plateformes radiocanadiennes pour faire rayonner leur travail. Je veille aussi à offrir une couverture rigoureuse de l’actualité artistique de la section. Parallèlement, j’écris des récits numériques, longs formats (long form) ou dossiers; mes plus récents projets ont porté sur des histoires de survivants d’une des routes les plus meurtrières au Québec, sur la diversité culturelle dans les rôles-vedettes à l’écran ou encore sur la fatigue de compassion chez les intervenants sociaux de première ligne. J’ai également été journaliste pour Radio-Canada en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, où j’ai compris l’importance et l’essence du journalisme régional; j’y ai fait un peu de tout, comme du reportage radio, du web, de la réalisation, de la chronique culturelle, de la lecture de bulletins de nouvelles, de la recherche, alouette. J'ai eu la chance de voir mon travail être récompensé aux prix Judith-Jasmin et aux CAJ Awards.

Aimerait accompagner: J’espère pouvoir travailler avec des gens qui ont envie d’imager des histoires et des émotions à travers de longs formats, ou de construire des univers sonores pour leurs reportages radio.

DYLAN ROBERTSON 

À propos: Je me débrouille en français mais je n'ai jamais fait partie d'une salle de rédaction francophone. En poste à la colline parlementaire depuis six ans, je suis actuellement chef du bureau pour le Winnipeg Free Press, et je me penche sur l'impact du Fédéral sur les Prairies. Autrefois, j’ai couvert une gamme de sujets, tels que de la politique LGBT ou les systèmes de demande d'asile en Europe. Je fais souvent des demandes d'accès à l'information et des reportages sur la politique.

Aimerait accompagner: Comme mentor j'aimerais aider quelqu'un qui s’identifie comme autochtone, ou qui ne se ressent pas reflété dans les salles de rédaction. Je peux vous aider à déposer des demandes d'accès à l'information, à cultiver des sources et à trouver le sujet d'un article dans les chiffres d'un document budgétaire. Je ne serais pas utile dans le cadre de chroniques ou de journalisme d'opinion.
