Today is alpha launch day for the experimental digital news outlet Ghent.community. Providing hyperlocal news in English about the city of Ghent is the initiative’s mission. The volunteers don’t consider themselves journalists, but promise best effort to remain as authentic, independent, honest and fair as possible in their news reporting.
Ghent.community will mainly be publishing short local news about the city, but readers can also expect some soft news like human interest stories and articles about local musicians, art or history. A core part will be accurate and recent announcements and reviews about restaurants, bars, clubs and events. A section about sports in Ghent will be added later.
