Mònica Garriga

I studied Law, International Relations and Communications and lived in Spain, the Netherlands, France and the Philippines, I then spent 12 years as a correspondent in Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, until digital and social technologies shook my world. I thus decided to study Multi-Platform Content in the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) became a partner at media140 and returned to the gorgeous city of Barcelona.

In Barcelona I've created several media140 events on journalism and big data, I’ve taught Communications and co-created CitizenSqKm, a project to experience how geolocation technologies and community networks can increase civic engagement and benefit the citizens of the European Union more broadly.
