Germantown Info Hub
The Germantown Info Hub is a community journalism project that seeks to share information and stories of and for residents of Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhoods. The Info Hub works to promote a cycle of communication involving Germantown community members. This includes creating, sharing, and discussing local news.
We do this through weekly outreach, including face-to-face tabling, where we invite residents to share ideas for stories and issues. We also circulate weekly text messages, sharing community events and soliciting input. Ideas from the community are shared with community journalists and media partners and are used to inform monthly community discussions. These discussions explore community issues and invite journalists to discuss their reporting. We publish occasional multimedia stories online and hope to expand opportunities for community contributors to share their stories.
