Community Journalists at Camden Disability Action
In the first week of January 2021, Camden Disability Action has started an exciting new Community Journalism training programme for Disabled people in Camden.
CDA has initiated partnerships with organisations that specialise in supporting marginalised people to tell their stories and get their voices heard.
The training supports people to use texts, voicemails, videos, photos, chat-app messages and emails to tell powerful stories about things that are happening in our communities, like the Covid-19 streetscape changes.
Once trained, people will no longer have to rely on professional journalists or engagement workers to get their voices heard.
Street Access has been chosen as the theme for the training, and participants will have their ideas, thoughts and findings added to a stand-alone website for information and comment. In future, more themes will be added as decided by the people involved.
The first Community Journalism course is being delivered in January, with more courses planned for February and March.
If you are a Disabled person and live, work, study or volunteer in Camden get in touch to join the next course.
You will get support if you have access needs.
