Latest edition of Hands on Handsworth Community Magazine

Posted on 25th February 2011 by

Back in September and October we ran a range of workshops to try and encourgae local people to get involved in a new community journalist project. The aim of the project is to take forward the idea to create a community magazine for Handsworth written by local people. Through the neighbourhood management programme, Tracey Thorne created two pilot issues on Hands on Handsworth.

The Community Journalist Project is now being developed and facilitated by Karl Greenwood from Multistory and Brian Homer from Homer Creative. They have been supporting many local people to get involved and start writing some stories.

Down load the first editions which has been mainly written by local people. Congratulations to them for creating an interesting edition…I look forward to reading more.
