Detroit Journalism Cooperative
DPTV is proud to be a charter member of the Detroit Journalism Cooperative, an innovative journalism project that includes The Center for Michigan, WDET Radio, Michigan Radio, and the newspapers of New Michigan Media. Visit http://detroitjournalism.org for all the coverage this year.
The Detroit Journalism Cooperative has been established with funding from Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Knight Foundation, Renaissance Journalism's Michigan Reporting Initiative and the Ford Foundation. Our charge is to add depth and dimension to the ongoing coverage of the Detroit bankruptcy and the reinvention of the city, with DPTV contributing video storytelling assets.
Among the stories we’re pursuing:
- How the bankruptcy proceedings are affecting various ethnic communities, city neighborhoods, and municipalities in Southeast Michigan;
- How Detroit's new city leadership is preparing for life after bankruptcy; and,
- Will the city's leadership will be able to repair decades of neglect and broken trust?
Along the way, there will be stories of people and organizations who are uncovering solutions to urban problems that affect the city, as well as a series of community conversations where DPTV viewers will be invited to participate and share their views.
Look for Detroit Journalism Cooperative coverage on DPTV as part of MiWeek, as features in American Black Journal, inside Detroit Performs, and in special broadcast events focused on Detroit’s Future.
