FotoPelaPaz Youth Media Project | Children, Equity, and Development

Via Scoop.itMediaMentor

In summer 2010, 15 students from the New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA), located in New York, the United States, travelled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to work on various media and human rights projects in favela communities around the city. One of them is the FotoPelaPaz Youth Media Project, which used photography as a tool in Complexo da Maré and sound exploration as a tool in Nova Holanda, one of the 17 communities that together comprise the favela of Complexo da Maré, to introduce human rights and child rights themes to the participants. The project sought to give the children and youth a new way of voicing their opinion and show a different image of their lives and their communities than the image often portrayed my mainstream media in Brazil.
