Data journalism is emerging as an important storytelling tool for journalists. Incorporating interactive elements into data-heavy pieces is a great way to engage audiences. At present in Malaysia, only Malaysiakini has dedicated resources to this field. Malaysiakini’s Kini News Lab has produced interactive projects on the Budget 2019, 1MDB, and PKR party elections. However, data journalism isn’t restricted to current events. This year, they also produced a comprehensive story on the May 13 race riots that happened in 1969. Lee Long Hui and Aidila Razak from Malaysiakini will present on the work they have done with News Lab and on the May 13 story respectively.
