Come to Elevate Engagement, May 18-21, Portland, Oregon

Journalism That Matters is once again partnering with the Agora Journalism Center at the University of Oregon to bring together journalists, public engagement practitioners, academics and students, funders, public servants, and other engagement pioneers to consider:

How can the public engage, not as an audience, consumers or marketplace, but as participants, with journalists, in creating civic structures for engagement and storytelling?

In addition, how must news organizations and journalists evolve so they are seen by diverse communities as trustworthy and culturally competent enough to tell their stories?

Video from our Denver Conference

Our new friend Corey Schneider offered to produce a video documenting our Denver conference. He just put the finishing touches on it, and we’re excited to share it with you. We have included a couple more JTM videos from previous conferences after the jump so be sure to check those out too.


Here’s one that Jacob Caggiano produced from our 2011 Beyond Books conference in Boston where we partnered with librarians to examine the intersections between libraries and journalism.


Finally, here’s a video from 2010 that Bill Weaver produced at our Seattle convening, Re-imagining News and Community in the Pacific Northwest.
