On June 22-24, 2011, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and MIT's Center for Civic Media hosted the MIT - Knight Civic Media Conference. The conference brings together past and present Knight News Challenge winners, media innovators, and community leaders – all working together to use new technologies to shape the future of news and civic media.
