Finding common ground through community-minded journalism

2018-04-13 09:30:00 2018-04-13 10:45:00 Europe/Rome Finding common ground through community-minded journalism #ijf18 Le comunità di tutto il mondo sono sempre più divise tra questioni politiche e ideologiche. Questa polarizzazione è parzialmente correlata alla prassi di ottenere le proprie notizie esclusivamente attraverso amici e familiari. Ecco tre progetti per affrontare questa sfida: Community Storytellers (Community Stories Lab) ha come obiettivi la salute generale e l'inclusività per il network di storyteller della contea dell'Ohio, rafforzando i legami tra media locali e stakeholder delle varie comunità. Utilizza i pochi spazi pubblici rimasti per ospitare cene e incontri di storytelling dove sono guidati i cronisti della comunità per reinventare le tradizioni. German Talks (Zeit Online) mira a far parlare i tedeschi con i tedeschi: un vero dialogo che implica lo scambio aperto di opinioni e argomenti opposti. Faccia a faccia, in tutto il paese, nessun politico, solo giornalisti e i loro lettori. Place and Privilege Story Circles (Capital Public Radio) si basa sull'organizzazione di incontri - Story Circles - dove residenti radicalmente diversi si trovano faccia a faccia per parlare di alloggi, ascoltarsi l'un l'altro e provare a ragionare sulla strada da seguire. È un esperimento di ascolto profondo e integrazione. Moderato da Andrew DeVigal, l'evento fa parte dell'iniziativa Finding Common Ground, che mira a raggiungere una collaborazione transnazionale tra professionisti dell'informazione in grado di coinvolgere le persone e farle incontrare con chi è diverso. Organizzato in collaborazione con Agora Journalism Center, Finding Common Ground è stato reso possibile dai finaziamenti di Robert Bosch Stiftung e News Integrity Initiative.

Communities across the globe are becoming increasingly divided across political and ideological lines. This polarization is partially related to the normalcy of getting one’s news from friends and family exclusively. Here are three projects addressing this challenge:

  • Community Stories Lab’s “Community Storytellers” aims to contribute to the overall health and inclusivity of the Ohio County storytelling network by strengthening links between local media and community stakeholders. It takes an assets-based approach–reimagining existing community traditions and utilizing the few remaining public spaces–to host supper and storytelling clubs and to mentor community columnists.
  • Zeit Online’s “Germany Talks” aims to get Germans talking to Germans – a true dialogue involving the open exchange of opposing views and arguments. Face to face, across the country. No politicians, just you and another reader in your area.
  • Capital Public Radio’s “The View From Here: Place and Privilege” grapples with the housing affordability crisis in California’s capital by organizing “Story Circles” that bring wildly diverse residents face-to-face in intimate settings to talk about housing, hear one another and envision the way forward. It is an experiment in deep listening, radical hospitality and bridge building.

This session is a part of the Finding Common Ground initiative that aims to achieve cross-border collaboration with engagement practitioners in the media by supporting projects that get people to look up from their devices, meet people with different opinions, listen, and engage in meaningful and civil dialogue across silos and polarized positions.
