Community media engagement projects look slightly different in each town or neighborhood, but they share a common purpose: to revitalize or create conversation between local media, civil society, and citizens; to connect people with each other and with sources of information and action on local issues; and to give people a voice in the issues that matter to them in their communities.
We're working with some great partners around the country who wanted to use our Listening Post umbrella as a way to start and sustain their work. If you'd like to learn more about a formal partnership, let us know. It's not a prerequisite for using our site or collaborating with us.
See how our partner projects are progressing below:
Let us know how you're using the playbook, or if you'd like us to add something. We're always up for some feedback!
And, send us a paragraph about yourself and your work, and what kind of media engagement project you have or would like to build. We'd love to be in touch.GET IN TOUCH
El Tímpano—Spanish for eardrum—is a community-driven news initiative that will engage the California Bay Area’s Spanish-speaking immigrants in conversation to surface and amplify their voices, experiences, and concerns on local and national affairs. The Listening Post Collective is working with El Tímpano to help provide an ear and a voice to the Bay Area’s Latino immigrants, using recording booths and mobile conversations to engage and inform this underserved community and incorporate their voices in local conversations.
