Awesome Foundation News Taskforce

Via The Institute On Higher Awesome Studies, Inc.

Goal

To experiment with a new funding model for local news by bringing together leaders and innovators in communities to provide microgrants to journalism and media projects.

To experiment with a new funding model for local journalism, the Awesome News Taskforce will bring together 10 to 15 community leaders and media innovators in Detroit and two other cities to provide $1,000 microgrants to innovative journalism and civic media projects. By encouraging pilot projects, prototypes, events and social entrepreneurial ventures, Awesome News Taskforce will encourage a wide swathe of the community to experiment with creative solutions to their information needs.
