How do you make sure citizens are both informed and heard? We’ll share techniques developed by the Listening Post, a media engagement project that creates conversation around local news in New Orleans. Participants will learn creative offline strategies for community engagement such as public art, SMS, public events, and more, focused on 'news you can use' topics like housing, education, jobs, and health.
