Rebooting Rockwell's America: News, Art and Community

A PUBLIC SYMPOSIUM / September 11-13, 2009 / Stockbridge, Massachusetts


TENTATIVE SCHEDULE: TALKS, BREAKOUTS, IDEA SESSIONS

PROGRAM DETAILS POSTED AFTER JULY 1


Historians, authors, scholars, journalists, technologists, volunteer and citizen journalists and new local media entrepreneurs will seed our talks and conversations. We'll work toward some fresh insights on the capacity of the social-media technologies to create and nurture real communities . . . to sustain the values and purposes of journalism in service of democracy. Our goal is to tap the wisdom of each participant, to trade examples of journalism that matters and journalism that works. While the program is a work-in-progress here's a sense of when, where and how we'll be working together:
