The Bay Area Media Collaborative (BAMC) is Renaissance Journalism’s three-year initiative to test an innovative model of collaborative, community-centered journalism. This ambitious effort seeks to inspire and support journalists from diverse news organizations to work collaboratively as they investigate the region’s most pressing problems—and in the process, produce powerful journalism with far-reaching impact. To begin, the Bay Area Media Collaborative will tackle the complex housing crisis. Check out BAMC’s upcoming events calendar.
Renaissance Journalism is inviting journalists to participate in On The Table, a day of community building through conversation sponsored by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation on Wednesday, November 15. To participate, journalists will agree to host and organize a small-group mealtime discussion about the region’s housing challenges and possible solutions.
As part of our latest initiative, the Bay Area Media Collaborative, Renaissance Journalism is convening unique, Bay Area-wide conversations to help journalists and community residents exchange their views about the region’s housing crisis.
The effort will be organized by Spaceship Media, a nonprofit organization founded by two veteran reporters, which encourages respectful and journalism-supported dialogue to bridge divides and build trust between the media and the public.
