HiperBarrio: Local Stories, Global Audience

As promised, this is the second installment of a two-part podcast about Medellín, Colombia and how the HiperBarrio project is taking advantage of the city's new network of library parks to teach the skills of citizen media to young people from the working class northern hills.


In today's podcast we speak with:

The background music is “Revolve” by hisboyelroy. It is available at ccMixter under a Creative Commons Noncommercial Sampling Plus license.

You can learn more about HiperBarrio by visiting their space on the Rising Voices wiki. If you understand Spanish, you can visit the participant blogs from the workshops in Santo Domingo and La Loma San Javier. Alvaro Ramirez has a great summary of posts from participant blogs from the Convergente workshop, which is also in La Loma.

In the coming weeks we'll translate material from all of these blogs into English and post it here on Global Voices.
