Journalism Design Collaborative Project Kicks Off (soon)

with 3 comments

With this initial entry, I’m writing to kick off the nascent web presence for an independent journalism collaborative project which will develop over the coming months, with the intention of developing strategies to advance public interest journalism and news provision in Philadelphia and the surrounding region. This project is funded by the William Penn Foundation as the next step in developing networks for journalists and other information providers, resourcing strategies, and innovations in creating a networked community around public affairs issues.

This site will be updated with timely information on the project by me and Gerri Spilka and Emily Byrne of OMG Center for Collaborative Learning, and will hopefully serve to engage participants in the process that yielded J-Lab’s report, as well as anyone else interested in the future of public interest journalism in the region. While project planning is ongoing (I officially start on April 27, 2010, after finishing up my work as Communications Director at PennPraxis), we wanted to ensure that you had a way to reach us, and to give you a sense of our own timeline for kickoff. Stay tuned for more information as the project gets underway later this month. Please feel free to reach out to me at michael.greenle [AT], Gerri at gerri [AT] and Emily at emily [AT], and for those of you arriving at the site through William Penn Foundation’s introductory email, we’ll be in touch over the coming weeks to gather your input and get feedback as we progress.

Thanks for checking in. We’re looking forward to working on this exciting project!
