A project of AIR, Localore is a producer-led public media transformation project that launched in 2012 at 10 stations across the country. Dot Connector chief Jessica Clark was chief strategist for building, launching, and documenting the project. Watch: This Is Localore. We summed up the project’s impact and lessons learned in this report, What’s Outside: Public Media 2014. Clark is currently editing the report on the project’s latest iteration, Finding America.
Much of the work continues: Curious City, iSeeChange, Sonic Trace, are among those continuing to develop new models, create documentary films and radio features, and carry public broadcasting into new territory. Funding was provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and AIR’s members worldwide.
