ABOUT ON THE GROUND
“On The Ground”, a program of Concentrate, aims to dive deep into a changing city or neighborhood, profiling the people, places, and businesses that contribute to its vitality.  Brianna Kelly is the embedded reporter for On the Ground Ypsi and an Ypsilanti resident.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
A journalist is embedded into our community for a period of five months, focusing weekly coverage on the community and bringing a space to life with meetings & events, and creating a temporary media hub.

On The Ground Ypsi will be embedded in the City of Ypsilanti from August 2 – November 29.
Weekly editorial coverage of Ypsi will be published in Concentrate (http://www.secondwavemedia.com/concentrate).
