WHAT IS CIVIC MEDIA?
NO RIGHT ANSWER
It is important to note that several of the fellows consider their own definitions or understandings of civic media to be ‘in progress’ or ‘working definitions’ that they feel are constantly shifting and expanding. There is a shared sense that there is no urgent need to define rigid boundaries around the field, and indeed that a strength of the field is its fluidity and creativity. Still, an emphasis on engaging a community or a public combined with imagining how that community or public can change conditions for the better seem to underscore almost all the fellows’ work.
