flood radio + tv pakistan

This experimental radio and television project was developed after extensive flooding across many areas of Pakistan.  The overarching aim of the project was to build community resilience and engage community, complimenting a large multifaceted humanitarian response by the Red Cross in the wake of the flooding.

 The project worked alongside community and local volunteers from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province in northern Pakistan to Sindh province in the southeast of the country. Creative work, including music, poetry, collaborative Q&A and storytelling forums, were developed in response to a range of social and cultural issues associated with the flooding. This project provided rich ground to investigate this complex event and the different narratives surrounding the flooding using creative and experimental means.  It also investigated many issues that have not been well understood or explored in mainstream media coverage following the disaster.
