Poor individuals and families renting accommodation in Phnom Penh document their lives using digital media. Although amongst the poorest city dwellers, renters are currently excluded from policy initiatives directed at the urban poor. This project aims to both document the lives of renters, as well as show how important they are for the city. Project outputs: narratives, photos, video, blog, exhibition as part of the annual Our City Festival.
