Workshop Outputs

IT for Change, in partnership with IKM Emergent Research Programme, organised a consultation on 'Digital story telling and local communication processes' (Bengaluru, 5th June 2008). The aim was to open up a process of dialogue among people who are interested in contextualised, development-oriented local communication processes. The consultation brought together community practitioners from around India along with a few researchers from other regions, to look at digital story telling as a powerful medium and format that allows participants of a local communication process to express themselves, make statements, evaluate their own environment, and legitimise their struggles. The consultation also explored how digitally enabled communication processes could contribute to build a bottom-up development discourse that informs development policies and programmes.
