Engagement is Relational, not Transactional

This has less to do with the music side, but with the relational labor side as it applies to journalism.

There’s a new pioneering “tribe” in today’s news organizations: those working on engagement. To be specific, I’m not focusing on those working in audience engagement but more on journalists who are engaging with and empowering the public to support communities to thrive. Less transaction, more relation; less on audience, more on community. One of the notions in defining community engagement is a role to purposefully put the public at the center of what we do, bring together the people who accurately represent all of the voices and then to authentically listen, facilitate and connect those conversations as a reflection of the whole story. I’m keenly interested in journalism in service to civic engagement that is thick, impactful and at scale, referencing Ethan Zuckerman’s Beyond “The Crisis in Civics.”
