Community News Commons held a special ‘Looking Forward’ event on Wednesday evening, January 30, at the Winnipeg Free Press Cafe, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
Many brave souls fought off the cold weather and came out to meet their fellow CNC citizen journalists, discuss story ideas and the kinds of journalism training they would like to receive in the coming year, as well as the types of community engagement events they think CNC should host.
It was an inspiring and engaging ninety minutes (actually many of us stayed well past 8 pm).
It was great to see so many people come and share ideas, ask questions, and help build and shape our Community News Commons. I’m looking forward to helping implement many of the suggestions everyone brought to the table.
If you want to share any story ideas, training requests, town hall forum issues, or have other thoughts about what you’d like to see with CNC and how you can get involved, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 204.223.6624
