The yarraReporter was a grassroots journalism platform for anyone that lives, works or plays in the City of Yarra that ran from 2009 – 2017. We know our community is more than just the latest food trend or fashion tip – although we love those too. It’s the voices, the faces, the histories that make it the ever-changing and vibrant precinct of Melbourne that it is.
We were a passionate group of writers and creatives who found and told local stories, but also gave others the platform and tools to tell their own. We did this by providing free mentoring and journalism skills training through facilitated workshops and an internship program, which led to greater involvement within the community through the yarraReporter.
