Jennifer Jones Citizen Journalism and the Digital Commonwealth Project #ScotFLF15

Jennifer Jones Commonwealth Digital Project
Jennifer was the project coordinator for the Big Lottery Funded Glasgow 2014 Legacy project “Digital Commonwealth”. She is a part-time researcher, completing a PhD on major events and social media with a focus on citizen journalism. She is a digital media practitioner who has delivered materials, training and resource support for a number of third sector and cultural organisations.

The practice-research project “Digital Commonwealth” utilised digital storytelling techniques, including blogging, video, audio and social media as a method of exploring and sustaining digital participation within identified marginalised and unvoiced communities across Scotland. It used the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as a catalyst and supported individuals and communities across Scotland to produce digital artefacts, shared online and archived as record of the community voice, often drowned out during the delivery of a media saturated major event.
