Illinois HumanitiesThere’s no question that the field of journalism faces historic changes and challenges.  After the results of the 2016 election took so many news outlets by surprise, it’s no longer possible to ignore the reality that the relationship between the media and the American public needs work.  But we’re not starting from square one: civic-minded media innovators across the country are already pursuing projects that put listening, dialogue, and collaboration front and center.

In partnership with Columbia College Chicago, Hearken, City Bureau, Groundsource, and the Crowd-Powered News Network, Illinois Humanities is bringing those people together at the People-Powered Publishing Conference.

Carolyn Powers, Media Development Specialist for Internews, will be presenting on a panel – Community-driven design: Using tools of organizing and media development to assess a community's information needs – on Thursday, November 9  from 10:15-11:15.
