We believe that successful engagement is inherently collaborative, and that “engaged” journalism extends beyond the work of the newsroom. This two-day conference provides tools for journalists, civic-engagement specialists and community storytellers to create a more collaborative and equitable news landscape by strengthening the connections between news organizations and the people they cover. We’ll take a hands-on approach to explore where educators, artists, tech developers and others share common goals with journalists.
This conference aims to provide a space for journalists, civic-engagement practitioners and community storytellers to work together on a shared goal: strengthening the connections between news organizations and the people they cover, in order to create a more collaborative and equitable news and information landscape.
Over the course of two days, we’ll take an in-depth, hands-on approach to the challenges and opportunities surrounding engagement-driven journalism. At the same time, we believe that successful engagement is inherently collaborative, and that “engaged” journalism extends beyond the work of the newsroom: we’ll also think creatively and strategically about how journalists and people outside the newsroom — educators, artists, technologists, organizers and more — can work toward common goals.
