On behalf of our partners – Knight Foundation, The Winnipeg Free Press and Free Press Café, Winnipeg Public Library, Red River College and 93.7 CJNU – The Winnipeg Foundation thanks all the citizen reporters and information consumers who participated in the citizen journalism / community engagement project, Community News Commons (CNC).
From 2012 to 2017, CNC successfully trained hundreds of people on how to create multi-media online journalism, paving the way for the publishing of 3,000 stories, thousands of photographs, and numerous video and audio segments, posted by a diverse and energetic group of citizen journalists.
Visitors from around the block and around the world consumed and commented on the stories, pictures, video and audio posted on the CNC website. We thank you for your interest, feedback and support.
You are invited to browse this online archive that serves as a testament to the hard work and dedication displayed by so many people during CNC’s tenure.
