The exhibition “Fake ≠ Fact Info Lab” on the other hand is based on the materials from Swedish Museum of Work, which in turn originates from material by the Swedish Media Council. The Travelling Democracy Lab was first produced in 2018 and has toured throughout Sweden with the aim to strengthen the ability of students and young adults to independently assess the credibility and ideological starting point of various sources.
Now it is available in Rēzekne, till October 16, 2022.
The event is organized by Danish Cultural Institute in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania @dki.lv, Baltic Centre for Media Excellence, and the Nordic Journalism Center @NordiskJournalistcenter
The event is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers @nordenen, Swedish Institute, Rēzekne Academy of Technologies, and Latvian National Library.
