Neighbourhood Diaries

Introduction:

la-loma-suenos-todos.jpg

Neighbourhood Diaries is a citizen media pilot project of Kalam, a Kolkata-based NGO which encourages young people from marginalized communities to embrace creative writing and critical thinking and, Sanlaap, another local non-profit which helps sexually abused female children in the red light areas of Kolkata. Urbi Bhadhuri, Bina Dalui, Sahar Romani, and Bishan Sammadar are organizing an innovative 15-week workshop series to teach the tools and techniques of citizen media so that the young participants of Neighbourhood Diaries are empowered to describe their own lives and communities to the rest of the world.
