New Paths: Alliance for Community Media 2019 Annual ConferenceJesse Hardman, founder and director of the Listening Post Collective, a national community journalism project run by Internews, is a speaker at the plenary session: What can we Learn from Engagement Journalism?, scheduled for 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM on Thursday, July 11 at the Alliance for Community Media 2019 Annual Conference.

One of the most interesting developments in journalism in the last few years has been a turning toward audience as collaborators and co-creators. Broadly defined as “engagement journalism”, we are seeing a host of experiments to break down walls between creators and audiences to build lasting relationships and different relationships between people and media institutions. The effort may seem like “Back to the Future” for some people in community media – which theoretically is devoted to meeting the information needs of local audiences. That said, what can we learn, adopt or work with in this growing field? Are there willing collaborators in the field who want to “dance” with community media groups? Join us for a discussion of what’s possible.
