An interesting community-partnership initiative:

The Guardian today announced partnerships with some of the most prestigious UK arts institutions to give audiences access to the best cultural performances, shows and events throughout 2012.

By partnering with Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House, The Young Vic, Art Angel and the Roundhouse the Guardian will offer all more arts multimedia content than ever before.

Paul Bradshaw at Online Journalism Blog:

It’s a recognition that it’s not just media organisations that are now in the content business (witness Manchester City’s policy of recruiting digital heads from press and TV) — and a news publisher’s role has to be re-assessed in that context (better to be partners than competitors, perhaps?).

Here’s what ProPublica learned about managing a collaboration across hundreds of news organizations
“Since the project began in 2017, we received more than 6,000 submissions, gathered hundreds of public records on hate crimes, and published more than 230 stories.”

This is how Report for America ended up funding a community Wikipedia editor (!) at a library (!!)
“Do something different and do it together.”
