Editor's note: When we opened a pop up newsroom at the Calgary Public Library in January, we had a foggy idea of what we might do there. We knew we wanted to engage Calgarians on the question of what's next for the city. We knew the project would be an experiment in civic engagement.
Our newsroom unexpectedly turned into a classroom. And it's been a blast!
Here's the story of a visit from Grade 9 Westmount Charter School students earlier this week, as told by Sprawl comic artist Sam Hester (aka The Listener).
The Sprawl's pop up newsroom will be at the Central Library until mid-March and will culminate in a limited-run newspaper for Sprawl members, packed with exclusive content from a diverse group of local contributors.
