WPC’s August virtual meeting

What: “Wichita Journalism Collaborative: Joining Forces to Support Local Media” with Courtney Bengtson and Amy DeVault

When: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 5

Registration: Free through Eventbrite

To help meet the urgent information needs during this global pandemic, a partnership of local newsrooms and community institutions has recently launched The Wichita Journalism Collaborative, a coalition formed to support and enhance quality local journalism. Bolstered by a $100,000 grant from New York-based Solutions Journalism Network, the initiative’s local partners include: The Active Age, The Community Voice, Kansas Leadership Center’s The Journal, KMUW, KSN-TV, The Sunflower, The Wichita Eagle, Wichita Public Library, AB&C Bilingual Resources and The Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University.

Join Wichita Professional Communicators for a virtual program with Courtney Bengtson and Amy DeVault of the Wichita Journalism Collaborative to learn how the initiative was founded, what it has been working on, and where it envisions going next. Our monthly meeting will take place virtually from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 5, on Zoom.

Registration through Eventbrite will be taken up to 30 minutes before the start time of this free Zoom presentation. Registrants will be provided a link by email after registering.
