After a year in hibernation, we’ve brought new and old blood together to bring you what the Portland area has long yearned for: an email events list and a regular series of social gatherings for journalists and journalist sympathizers.
Our first gathering is a TRIVIA FOR PORTLAND JOURNALISM NERDS meetup and happy hour mixer at The Waypost. Roll in before 7 pm for the best prices.
There will be prizes.
You should also sign up with our Facebook and Twitter feeds and for Portland Newsies, ONA board member Sarah Mirk’s awesome new twice-a-month email newsletter of journalism-related events around the Portland area. Great things are happening, so bring a friend! We’re eager to see you there.
Eleven projects from 13 U.S. universities each won $35,000 to help seed collaborative news projects in their communities and six more projects received honorable mentions. Each school is working with local news partners on innovative projects.
Projects will tackle a range of experiments, including:
Can virtual reality tell the stories of marginalized youth in the Georgia juvenile system?
Can events journalism engage a local Hispanic community to follow government news affecting Latinos?
Can a project tracking food truck lines show news organizations how to develop commercially valuable data?
Can students create a digital network for fact-checking and investigating claims about the African-American community?
This is the second round of micro-grants awarded through the program, which encourages more U.S. journalism schools to be thought leaders, innovators and change agents. Learn more about the Challenge Fund projects.
