Join the Neighborhood Voices Network Summer journalism cohort
The Neighborhood Voices Network will take place July 12, 14, 26 & 28 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at the Public Media Network. This free course gives participants the training, tools and platform to create journalism that matters.
Are you tired of the type of news stories you see about your community? Do you feel that important stories and voices are left out of mainstream media? Then take control of the narrative.
Public Media Network is launching its fifth cohort of the Neighborhood Voices Network this July to put control of the media in your hands. If you are interested in journalism, and want to use your voice to provide representation for your community, then the Neighborhood Voices Network might be for you.
Neighborhood Journalists will be given the training, platform, and tools to start reporting on news in their community. The Neighborhood Journalist Network, will showcase media coverage from a wide array of voices. More people, and more perspectives, means that news coverage will be more well-rounded, and lift up more voices in the community.
The upcoming July cohort will take place in-person at the Public Media Network (Epic Center, 3rd floor). An online option is available for those unable to attend in person, however in-person attendance is recommended. Participation in this program is free of charge. Dates and times of our in-person training sessions are listed below:
Tuesday, July 12, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Thursday, July 14, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Tuesday, July 26, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Thursday, July 28, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
After completing the training sessions, Neighborhood Journalists are welcomed to join a monthly virtual meeting with past cohort members to discuss current projects, and learn more about the role of journalism in our world.
The Neighborhood Voices Network focuses on a style of journalism called Movement Journalism, which is journalism in service to liberation. Movement journalism emphasizes work that focus on the root-causes of issues, and centers the stories of those most impacted.
