Do you live in Cambridge, have video production skills, and think that media should be used to empower local communities? Cambridge Community Television is launching a new project called Neighbor 2 Neighbor, to embed citizen journalists in each neighborhood of Cambridge, and we need you.

The idea is to produce media about local issues, to be cablecast on CCTV’s community cable channels and posted on the web, along with blogs, podcasts and other tools. Small stipends are available and we are looking for tech-savvy people who want to work with activists in their neighborhoods to help move issues along through on-line and real life social networking. (If you are one of those activists who is excited by this project, and you don’t yet have the technical skills, we can teach you!)

If all of this sounds really great and you don’t know where you might fit in, contact us anyway! There is a pdf questionnaire at www.cctvcambridge.org/node/1318#attachments - just answer the questions in an email to info@cctvcambridge.org or mail to CCTV, 675 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139, and we will keep you posted about N2N.
