Community journalism project to open newsroom at Golden Belt

Posted by Lisa Sorg on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 12:43 PM

The local youth media project, Northeast Central Durham Community VOICE, is publishing its first print edition this month—and is moving into its new digs at Golden Belt, 807 E. Main St., in Durham.

Scientific Properties is donating space in Building 4 to the publication, which is sponsored by journalism programs at UNC and N.C. Central University. (Disclosure: The Indy leases space in the Venable Building from Scientific Properties.)

VOICE went online in Septmeber at durhamvoice.org. It is holding a general meeting Saturday, Feb. 11, from 10-11 a.m. in its newsroom at Golden Belt for area youth interested in writing, photography, video, blogging, art or journalism.

For more information on the NECD Community VOICE, contact Jock Lauterer at jock@email.unc.edu, Bruce dePyssler at bdepyssler@nccu.edu, or Lisa Paulin at lpaulin@nccu.edu.

How can we thank Durham enough? This new space is just a physical manifestation of the open arms, minds and hearts the Northeast Central Durham Community VOICE has encountered since we first stumbled upon the idea of giving the neighborhood its own...well...VOICE!
