PACE has just released a new white paper, ‘Infogagement: Citizenship and Democracy in the Age of Connection‘. The paper grew out of our ‘Information and Engagement Project’, a two year conversation at PACE that involved multiple convenings across the country and dozens of interviews with leading thinkers and practitioners in the fields of journalism, civic technology and public engagement. In these conversations we explored how new and old forms of information delivery could encourage more civic engagement, particularly among previously disengaged populations. What we discovered was a complex set of cause and effect relationships that creates an image of public life ‘that has become something more like a Jackson Pollock painting’.

The project and paper were financially supported by PACE members the Rita Allen Foundation, the Case Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the McCormick Foundation, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The paper is available as a free pdf download at the PACE website, www.pacefunders.org.

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, will introduce and moderate the webinar. Matt Leighninger, the Executive Director of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium and the author of the paper, will summarize the paper’s findings. Paula Ellis, former Senior Vice President of the Knight Foundation and now a Kettering Foundation Associate, will provide additional commentary.
