The New School

The New School is a private non-profit research university for scholarly activists, fearless artists, and convention-defying designers.

WHY WE INVESTED

The Journalism and Design Program of The New School trains local newsrooms on systems and design thinking through workshops, convenings, and a digital toolkit. Understanding the system that their work and organizations are part of allows journalists to deliver innovative and engaging journalism that truly serves their local communities.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the New School’s work training local newsrooms on systems thinking and how it applies to journalism.
