People-Powered Publishing Conference is next week!

The relationship between the media and the American public needs work. But we’re not starting from square one: civic-minded media innovators across the country are already pursuing projects that put listening, dialogue, and collaboration front and center.
In partnership with Columbia College Chicago, Hearken, City Bureau, Groundsource, and the Crowd-Powered News Network, Illinois Humanities is bringing those people together at the People-Powered Publishing Conference.
This conference is about making connections, working through ideas and sharing resources.  It’s also a space for practitioners across sectors to start doing new things together.
Join us if you’re a seasoned engagement reporter ready to share what you’ve learned. Join us if you’re a journalist trying to make a case for engagement to your bosses, or if you’ve got a knotty engagement challenge you need help cracking.  If you’re a member of a community organization that’s collaborated with your local media – or if you have a collaboration idea and you’re trying to make it real – this conference is for you too.
