The Rapidian

Print

The Rapidian is an online platform for citizen journalism, where community members can share positive stories about their neighborhoods and post calendar listings of events in Western Michigan. The Rapidian aims to fill the void in a local “news desert” that lacks daily newspaper. A collaboration between Grand Rapids Television (GRTV), WCYE-FM and The Wealthy Theater, The Rapidian offers media literacy and community journalism training to individuals and nonprofits, in order to foster local pride and civic engagement, and unify a diverse community.
