Jose Miguel Calatayud

Freelance journalist, project director at Arena
I am a freelance journalist based in Berlin since January 2020, and earlier I was based in Barcelona from 2016 to 2019. I cover Europe and write features for international media, and in 2017 and 2018 I worked on a journalistic project about citizen political activism, democracy and human rights in Europe thanks to an Open Society Fellowship. I am also working as a project director with Arena for Journalism in Europe, a non-profit foundation promoting cross-border collaborative journalism and the organiser of Dataharvest, the European Investigative Journalism Conference. At Arena, I am also leading the effort to build the Arena Housing Project, an open collaborative network for journalists and researchers working on housing, which will also become a blueprint for other topic-based open collaborative networks.
