The View From Here is Community Engaged Journalism
The View From Here delivers powerful, authentic and important stories that reflect and represent our entire community. Community engagement is an expectation of ourselves, and what others should expect from us. It’s our process and promise.
The View From Here produces radio documentaries, podcasts and community media, designs digital and photographic pieces for our website and social media conversations and shares our work through community events, public exhibits and presentations.
Community engagement is how we serve our community—to listen, to provide a space and tools to help tell stories and to create social impact. We are using public radio to build stronger communities. At Capital Public Radio, our definition of community engagement is working collaboratively to discover, understand and voice community needs, concerns and aspirations.
The View From Here explores one topic for a year, asking questions and seeking solutions, giving us an opportunity to reflect and respond as we learn together. Vigorous community engagement pushes us to discover, develop and report the powerful stories that impact and inspire all of us.
The View From Here is Capital Public Radio’s commitment to in-depth, thought-provoking, relevant and intimate first-person stories. Through community engagement efforts, and what we produce, we galvanize community conversations on pressing social issues.
