Jornal Jardim Carolina
The community project “Jardim da Carolina” is proposed by the Journalism course of São Paulo’s University Center (UNASP), Brazil, through its branch of experimental branch of journalism (ABJ). It aims to bring to Artur Nogueira’s community in São Paulo a monthly 16 pages printed publication where the locals are portrayed through cultural and social stories. The project has been running for three years already with significant results. It counts on neighbourhood popular movements’ participation, especially from the Residents Association. It is a place of expression for local residents (approximately 4000). The project seeks to portray the daily life and the demands of the local population with a proactive and citizen focus. In addition to generating a critical view of the local situation by the journal’s audience, the project aims to develop opportunities for socially vulnerable young people through photography and video documentary.
