Introducing MetaConnects: a site for community organizers

MetaConnects.orgAs you may know, the Alhambra Source is a collaborative project initiated by journalists and communication researchers at the USC's Annenberg School. The members of the USC Metamorphosis research group would now like to share with you another exciting project we have just launched. Introducing MetaConnects, a website targeted at community organizers and local practitioners.

For more than a decade, the Metamorphosis Project at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism has been studying the communication practices of diverse neighborhoods across Los Angeles. Over the course of time, Metamorphosis developed the Communication Infrastructure Approach to understanding community-level communication – this approach highlights how strong connections between organizations, local and ethnic media, and community residents can improve the health and vitality of all sorts of neighborhoods. Through this research, we also came to realize that community-based practitioners have long understood the value of a neighborhood's Communication Infrastructure in their efforts to improve community opportunity and well-being.Today, we are proud to announce the launch of the MetaConnects website at www.metaconnects.org. It is an online piece of a wider online and offline Metamorphosis Project effort aiming to bridge the gaps between practitioners and academic researchers. Informed by feedback and suggestions from a variety of community-based practitioners and members of academia, the MetaConnects website is a space to share research findings, strategies, tools, and innovative collaborative projects, all in pursuit of community-level social change. Grounded in a commitment to community-based and participatory research, its theoretical foundations can be a force to bolster practical action at local levels.
