A selection of previous and upcoming events in Hive Media Lab:
Come see Seattle Live to get to know our city like you’ve never known it before. Meet and hear local voices with ideas, stories, and surprising information that you’ll wish you knew sooner. Tickets will be available soon.
Seattle Live is a live program with close-up interviews and performances by local voices that offer a fresh look. The innovative format will help us relate to our neighbors in new ways. Connect with this community media initiative through their production meetup, Twitter, or Facebook.
Designed to amplify digital-first production, these workshops will feature hosts from PBS Digital Studios shows, industry producers, YouTube creators and strategists to lead discussion of digital content development, production, channel optimization, and marketing. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their digital-first programming experiences and connect with others in the industry. Registration will open in April.
This community media event will share "Seattle’s Untold Black History: Education then and now." Seattle Untold events will demystify Seattle's Black community by unearthing and sharing local Black history with an audience largely unfamiliar and unaware of the cultural landscape. Structured as a roundtable discussion, a moderator will guide the conversation around educational programs, practices, and standards. More information about this event will be available soon.
The U.S. Department of State's Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists brought a couple dozen radio, print, and social media journalists from across Sub-Saharan Africa to Hive Media Lab, in partnership with the Poynter Institute for Media Studies and the World Affairs Council in Seattle. The delegation met with journalists at Crosscut and KCTS 9 during the Seattle portion of their visit to the United States. Themes for the exchange included rights and responsibilities of a free press in a democracy, the operational practices, standards, and institutions of American media, and current trends and challenges in political coverage.
Lisa Williams developed The Magic Pill, an "audio newsletter" which won the Edward J. Murrow Award for Excellence in Innovation. In this workshop, https://lisawilliams.github.io/email/ we shared best practices and an approach to starting newsletters that succeed, as well as retooling existing newsletters.
A peer-to-peer panel discussion and audience Q&A moderated by KCTS's Enrique Cerna and featuring David Kroman of Crosscut, Heidi Groover of The Stranger, Marcus Green of the South Seattle Emerald and Dan Beekman of The Seattle Times.
How can the media uncover and report on promising scaleable solutions, using data and other evidence? What are the benefits of coordinated media coverage on issues like homelessness, and of "labs," enabling ongoing in-dept coverage of hot-button topics? What role can columnists play in highlighting new ideas? Can solutions-based reporting restore civic confidence in the media and in government? Event brought to you by the Puget Sound Chapter of the Solutions Journalism Network and Cascade Public Media's Hive Media Lab, with support from the Western Washington Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online News Association Seattle.
