Hamilton’s Media Camp: Quick, Fun and Powerful

Published on 08/10/2008

This story describes a community-based initiative designed by members and groups affiliated with the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction (HRPR), a Vibrant Communities convener organization.

Nonprofit organizations working with the HRPR were offered six hours of media relations training over three days in the summer of 2008.  The big draw was the chance to sit down with media representatives, and the lessons revolved around the best ways to tell people-centered community-focused stories that get published.  Easily transferable to other communities, Media Camp was creative, instructive and fun.
