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
North Omaha community media outlets
During the summer of 2017 Internews’ Listening Post Collective, with support from the Omaha based Weitz Family Foundation, conducted an Information Ecosystem Assessment in North Omaha, Nebraska. Listening Post staff met with media workers, community leaders and residents about how information is created and shared in the area, how local media portrays the neighborhood, and the information needs of North Omaha residents. This assessment is now being used to inform a local Listening Post project.
