Neighbourhood Project

Neighbourhood Project

The Neighbourhood Project is inspired by PUKAR’s larger vision of documentation as an act of intervention. It invites students and other citizens to write ethnographies and histories of their own localities and neighborhoods. Using the lens of biography and family history, the project documents visual (using photographs and videos) as well textual data (in the form of essays and stories), valuing the special ability of such knowledge to provide an unusual, interior perspective on the sociology and history of the city.
The project concluded in September 2004.
