People-Powered Publishing Conference 2019
The fourth annual People-Powered Publishing Conference, November 14-15, 2019 at Columbia College in Chicago, will provide two full days of programs, workshops, talks, and clinics for only $25.
We’re tackling culture change in the newsroom this year. How do you build and protect a newsroom culture that is focused on what makes you essential for your community amid unpredictable social media trends, shifting corporate priorities, and constant cuts?
We believe that successful engagement is inherently collaborative, and that “engaged” journalism extends beyond the work of the newsroom. This two-day conference provides tools for journalists, civic-engagement specialists and community storytellers to create a more collaborative and equitable news landscape by strengthening the connections between news organizations and the people they cover. We’ll take a hands-on approach to explore where educators, artists, tech developers and others share common goals with journalists.
This conference aims to provide a space for journalists, civic-engagement practitioners and community storytellers to work together on a shared goal: strengthening the connections between news organizations and the people they cover, in order to create a more collaborative and equitable news and information landscape.Over the course of two days, we’ll take an in-depth, hands-on approach to the challenges and opportunities surrounding engagement-driven journalism. At the same time, we believe that successful engagement is inherently collaborative, and that “engaged” journalism extends beyond the work of the newsroom: we’ll also think creatively and strategically about how journalists and people outside the newsroom — educators, artists, technologists, organizers and more — can work toward common goals.
