PROGRAM: Reporting Back

Illinois Humanities Council
Local Partner: Nonprofits, Other Subject: Cross-Cultural Understanding, Journalism, Varies Audience: All, Other

Advancing Illinois Humanities’ commitment to strengthening society by fueling inquiry and conversation, Reporting Back takes a new approach to creating stories that engage and empower the citizens they represent: by making public dialogue a central part of the reporting process from square one.

Reporting Back is a community-driven dialogue and workshop series that aims to provide a means for members of the public to influence media conversation about the issues that affect them most.  In partnership with Chicago civic journalism lab City Bureau, Illinois Humanities facilitates and supports town-hall conversations and hands-on workshops that bring journalists and their publics together throughout the reporting process.
