When finding solutions is part of the journalist’s job

As noted earlier this month in a Nieman Journalism Lab post by Jan Schaffer, journalism that activates is becoming a trend.

Peter Pula, who started Axiom News, has 15 years of experience with doing what he calls “generative journalism”.  Founded on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, it is a strengths-based approach for propelling communities and organizations towards their highest potential.  And to support their journalism, Axiom News has a business model that works.

Learn more by coming to The Hub Seattle anytime between 9:00am and 4:00pm on Wednesday, June 26th.  Peter, along with Mike Fancher, former editor of the Seattle Times and Peggy Holman, co-founder of Journalism That Matters will be there.  In the spirit of Journalism That Matter’s unconferences, the conversation will center around the interests of the people who come.

At 11:00am, Peter will say a few words about Axiom News informed by the morning’s conversations.

Our purpose for gathering: to learn, make new connections, strengthen the web of the news and information community in the area, and to connect with other communities from around the world who are working in similar directions.

So join us.  And bring your friends.

Peggy Holman and Mike Fancher
