Bacha Bulletins

Video

This film explores Bacha Bulletins - a fifteen month project engaging young children from different communities in Lahore and Islamabad.

This film explores Bacha Bulletins - a fifteen month project carried out in 2012 - 2013 in Pakistan by Laaj Verd. An attempt to bridge communication gaps between different socio-cultural strata, Bacha Bulletins engages young children from different communities within Lahore and Islamabad. Storytelling, photography and aural workshops encourage them to actively explore their surroundings following the various cultural and social upheavals that have transformed their world. The material generated by these workshops is transformed into newspaper comics and online radio shows (in collaboration with Aamawaam).

The project is being run by Laaj Verd and is supported by Commonwealth Foundation and Prince Claus Fund. For more information about this project, contact Laajverd or visit the Insight to Conflict website.

Producer: Laajverd for "Bacha Bulletins" under the Culture and Conflict grant by Commonwealth and Prince Claus fund.
