Winzavod's Laboratory of journalism is aimed at solving a key task - professional support of beginner journalists writing on the topic of modern culture, and is part of the direction of Vinzavod.obrazovanie. The project combines professional training and practice, providing participants with the opportunity to communicate directly with experts in the field of media and simultaneously publish texts on the official website.
The participants of the fourth laboratory will be immersed in the activities of the largest contemporary art institution Winzavod, practice in the leading mass media, and get acquainted with leading editors and journalists.
The laboratory consists of two main blocks. The first block is a remote one, in which lab assistants work individually with media experts. The second block includes an intensive session consisting of a series of workshops by media representatives.

Today, the agency is not only the largest source of exclusive news about the cultural life of the country, but also the creator of unique multimedia projects aimed at the promotion of culture, which use the latest formats of information presentation. In the course of the classes, the agency's journalists will offer their listeners the actual topics of future publications and will give a professional assessment of the materials.
In addition to TASS, the Great Museum project is also part of the team of partners, which is being re-launched in the media format in autumn. Within the framework of the partnership, laboratory assistants will have the opportunity to work with museum collections and large art institutions.
