Carlton Citizen Journalism Network
The Carlton Community Website relies on a media model consisting of a hybrid of professional journalism, contributor content and citizen journalism endeavours. This model is possible because the internet and new technology are putting storytelling tools in the hands of everyday people, and opening up spaces for more stories and more diverse perspectives to be shared online. But unlike open publishing platforms where users publish directly to the public, community members will be supported by media professionals to create content for the Carlton Community Website through the Carlton Citizen Journalism Network.
Upcoming workshops in 2016
