TITLE:

Swain County News & Information Focus Group

DATE: Tuesday, August 9, 2022

TIME: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

LOCATION: Marianna Black Library, 33 Fryemont Street, Bryson City

COST: Free (lunch included)

REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/swain-focus-group

DESCRIPTION:

Carolina Public Press and the NC Local News Workshop are co-hosting an informal focus group to learn how Swain County residents find and use the news and information needed in daily life, especially in places where reliable internet access is weak, missing or unaffordable.  This small-group session is aimed at uncovering where the news gaps are in the community, why they’re there and what news organizations can do to help.

If you’re unable to attend in person, you’re invited to share your thoughts through two short online surveys: “The WNC News & Information Survey” at bit.ly/wnc-news-survey, and “NC Connection: Closing the News Gap” at bit.ly/cppgni22.

 

The News & Information Focus Group is limited to 15 participants and includes a light lunch. Childcare will be available for anyone who needs it. There’s no cost to attend, but participants must register in advance. Sign up at: bit.ly/swain-focus-group
