ICTs and Crime

  • August 03 , 2009

Hosted in partnership the University of Trinidad and Tobago, the goal for the program was to take youngsters from challenged neighborhoods who had no background in technology and have them create a short film in 17 days about the impact of crime as it affected their lives, and the role of technology in influencing youth behaviour. Through the process, participants were engaged firsthand in the areas of photography, script-writing, story boarding, camera operations, and shot selection.

In addition to the skills-training aspect, they also interfaced and interviewed persons whom they deemed influential in solving the problems including the Commissioner of Police, the CEO of the main Business Chamber and the Minister of ICT.
