Journey Workshops Overview
Become a leader in multimedia religion reporting
A Journey through NYC religions partners with universities, colleges and high schools to create God's Row projects to explore one street dense with houses of worship unique to New York City. The goal of these projects is to produce a unique online experience called "God's Row" that explores in depth the religion on one street in the city.
Under guided instruction, the students produce articles, video, podcasts, photos and other media based upon their reporting. Their reporting will be non-partisan and non-sectarian, consistent with the mission of A Journey through NYC religions.
How can a Journey Workshop help your school’s program?
A Journey Workshop teaches students to employ A Journey's method of religion reporting and journalism, including:
*Sympathetic Objectivity - Approaching with open minds & hearts, skepticism later if needed
*Hyper-local reporting on religion beats
*Cultivating genuine interest to understand people of faith
*Respectful & effective entrance into New York City houses of worship
All students will be expected to interview, take notes and photographs, collect quotes and submit responses to questions.
Cost and scheduling will be arranged with group leaders.

What should students bring with them for a day of reporting?
Students need to bring items to report and record their experiences:
Small Note Book (5.5×4.24 inch recommended)
Video Camera (optional)
How should I dress for the day?
Dress should be comfortable and respectful. Most days we are entering a variety of houses of worship. However, we also spend a lot of time in the surrounding neighborhoods and must be prepared for New York City’s weather. In some instances attire will be modified for visits to particular locations. In this case group leaders will be notified in advance.
What should I expect to do during the day?
Interviewing people at various houses of worship in New York City. In a God’s Row project we will concentrate on a particularly dense street and attempt to visit as many locations as possible.
Surveying each site. In A Journey’s process students collect contact and location information.
Taking pictures. Students will have an opportunity to photograph many houses of worship, both inside and outside.
Collect sound and video recordings when permitted.
How long should our group expect to be in the field?
Most of A Journey’s field days are seven or eight hours long. Reporting will commence in the morning with a break for lunch and finish in the early evening.
