Ten Years On
If you were walking down the streets, across the rubbish tip, through the market, by the mosque, along the railway lines or anywhere else in Neighbourhood 29 in Fushë Kosovë/ Kosovo Polje during the summer of 2011, you would have seen the darting figures of children carrying digital cameras just about everywhere. Taking part in the project were eighty children, aged 7-17. They were supported and guided by a team of volunteers from The Ideas Partnership (TIP) an NGO that began working with the community in 2010.
In the years that have passed since this project, TIP have continued to grow their support for the community with numerous projects and initiatives. During 2021, a small team of TIP staff and volunteers decided to look back at the 2011 photography project (www.neighbourhood29.com) to reflect on the last 10 years.
This site reconnects with some of those involved to uncover their memories of that time and discover their hopes for the future.
The above team was helped by the following volunteers to produce this website ten years on.
We would also like to offer many thanks to the members of Neighbourhood 29 who joined in this project in 2011 and in 2021.
