Amplifying Local Voices to Build a Healthier Public Sphere

Location: Boulevard B (2nd Floor)

Cortico, a nonprofit in cooperation with the MIT Media Lab, is gathering people whose voices are underrepresented in the public sphere into small group facilitated dialogues to share their perspectives on community needs and possibilities in the Local Voices Network. Recorded on Cortico’s own digital Hearth device, the conversations are transcribed, analyzed and uploaded to an online platform where they can be accessed by participants and local media. This session will offer an introduction to the Hearth device and a demo of our LVN platform.
