Newsrooms are work horses. They pump stories out of a churning workflow that is routinized and habitual. And like any habit, that workflow is hard to change. Involving and serving community members who aren’t already part of our audience takes new habits. In this session, we’ll find what those new habits might look like for you and your organization.
In this workshop we’ll
- Discuss what makes participation meaningful
- Use your experiences to explore the principles of participatory journalism
- Help you identify current and new practices that bring more communities into journalism production
You’ll leave with a worksheet full of participatory journalism practices co-created by the group to experiment with back in your newsroom.
