The Story of Open: New Tools for Impactful Open Government Journalism

10:30 - 11:50
Room 208, Shaw Centre

It’s not easy to tell the story of how open government initiatives impact citizens, or to parse newly transparent data into resonant narratives. As open government practitioners increasingly work to strengthen transparency and accountability, mediamakers play a critical role in building a more responsive and effective movement. And a growing number of CSOs, research organizations, and open government advocates are finding ways to help journalists do just that. This action-oriented session will focus on new tools and research models specifically designed to support open government advocates engage journalists and mediamakers to advance their vision. After several hands-on demonstrations, participants will bring their own challenges and design ways to adapt the methods shared to their own research and advocacy process. Each participant, regardless of their experience working with media, will leave the session with concrete ideas on when, how, why to engage journalists and mediamakers, and what our collective work stands to gain from doing so.
