Postindustrial is an independent, journalism-first multimedia outlet that’s redefining the region on our own terms, not those handed down to us by previous generations and the national media.

Our work reflects the history, legacy, and culture of one of the most important regions in America. We show where those regions are going — in the spirit of reinvention and renewal so emblematic of Postindustrial America. 

The stories we tell

Our mission is to shed light on the changing face of Postindustrial America, how we got where we are, and where we are going. We promote conversations about the challenges and opportunities inherent to the sustainable future of Postindustrial communities. We also highlight innovative ideas and the people behind them. 

Through these conversations, we look to give voice to people who have lost their own.

We tell these stories through words, images, audio, video, and events.

Our motto: Better community, better self.

We are people, culture, and ideas forging a new Postindustrial America.
