Boston Globe and Center for Civic Media join in media project
The Boston Globe and the MIT Center for Civic Media are collaborating to bring media experiments from the university to the audience of the Globe’s websites, Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com. Scheduled to launch this fall, the project is funded with $250,000 from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The grant will fund two positions at the Globe for a year: a university outreach coordinator and a creative technologist. Four Civic Media research fellowships will also be available in the Globe Lab, an innovation center housed at the Globe’s headquarters in Dorchester.
