On the Ground

Feature Story Eliza Lae

Photo Essay: The people of the North End

On the Ground helps to tell the story of the people, projects, and innovations that are creating “what’s next” for communities. The intended impact is for “solutions-oriented” media coverage, engagement and ultimately understanding of the community, resulting in awareness and investments that can contribute to the vitality and prosperity of the district covered.

The concept of On the Ground is to use an “embedded journalism” model to maintain a presence in a specific neighborhood for a period of 120 days. During this time the publication focuses weekly coverage on those neighborhoods to tell the story of the businesses, individuals, and nonprofits working and living there.

The Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood has invited Model D to be the next community covered in the On the Ground Program. 

Your On the Ground Team is Managing EditorAaron Mondry, and Project Editor Biba Adams.
