Listening Post Collective MENU

MEET OUR LISTENING POST COLLECTIVE MEMBERS

The Listening Post Collective is a vibrant and collaborative network of partners across the US. The Listening Post team focuses on two things.

Supporting our members

We help establish projects and mentor local media working in communities that have news and information gaps. We provide funding, help conduct local research, and offer project support and coaching to local actors who seek to expand their community’s voice in media and make sure residents are better informed.

Sharing and learning

Through our playbook, newsletters and our toolkit, we share our strategies with a community of reporting outlets, journalism schools, and engaged journalism projects around the US. We also seek to learn from that same cohort, and collaboratively explore sustainability, reach, representation, and impact of local journalism.

Oakland

Focus

El Tímpano—Spanish for “eardrum”—informs, empowers, and amplifies the voices of Oakland’s Latino immigrant community. Through innovative approaches to journalism and civic engagement, El Tímpano surfaces Latino immigrants’ stories, questions, and concerns on local and national issues, and provides information relevant to their needs. 


El Tímpano’s methods of civic engagement include a community microphone that travels the streets, libraries, churches, and laundromats of East Oakland to gather residents’ stories on pressing issues, and an SMS-based reporting platform to facilitate conversation and provide timely information. Through community-driven approaches that leverage the tools and assets of Oakland’s Latino immigrants, El Tímpano seeks to foster dialogue, engagement, and political empowerment among this community. 


El Tímpano launched with a 9-month collaborative research process in 2017 and a pilot one-month conversation on the issue of housing in the spring of 2018.  Through this work, Founder Madeleine Bair, was selected as a 2018-2019 Reynolds Fellow.  She is now experimenting with text messaging and two way conversations with the El Tímpano network. It is a fiscally sponsored project of Independent Arts & Media.

Membership details

Madeleine Bair, Founder of El Tímpano, was one of the Listening Post Collective's first partners. In the fall of 2017, the Listening Post Collective awarded El Tímpano with it's first research and pilot grant so that they could conduct a comprehensive Information Ecosystem Assessment.  Since the assessment, the Listening Post Collective has continued to mentor and support this important work.
