Organization: People's Resource Centre

About the Organization:

People’s Resource Centre (PRC) intends to build conditions and infrastructures so that a fairer, better system emerges from the existing one. Apart from conducting action-oriented research and community-level interventions, PRC publishes resource material on the politics of resource appropriation. PRC is also working towards republishing a series of forgotten/less-known texts of relevance to contemporary movements. A forum to create community resources for social transformation and to build perspectives and alternatives.

Nagar-Nadi Fellowship:

The three months-long fellowship will start on July 1. Fellows are expected to conduct field research, secondary research and documentation in their respective cities (specified in the next section) which can involve conducting interviews with communities impacted by the developments on urban rivers, planners, social activists, political representatives and academicians who can share critical insights on the subject. For each city, the key deliverables at the end of the fellowship program would be a publication-ready, detailed report with relevant and good-quality photographs of the site. Applicants can follow their own research schedule but must coordinate closely with the PRC team.

  • Applicants should have their own place of stay in any of these cities and should be willing to travel to urban and peri-urban areas adjacent to the river(s) in their city. Applicants who are local residents of any of these cities will be given preference.
  • Applicants should show a keen interest in the issues of urban sustainability, infrastructure, ecology and alternatives.
  • Applicants are expected to have demonstrated proficiency in conducting fieldwork, interviews, report writing (in Word) and photography. Knowledge of design tools such as Adobe Photoshop, and geo-mapping tools such as ArcGIS will be advantageous.
