Madeleine Bair – El Tímpano

Date grant awarded: April 18, 2018

“El Tímpano” project (Spanish for “eardrum”) aims to engage and support Oakland’s Latino immigrants through a reporting initiative that will bring conversation to surface and amplify their voices on local and national affairs, and provide information relevant to their concerns. The project engages collaboration with grassroots organizations, artists, and community leaders to engage and inform this community.

Through this project, the use of both recording posts and mobile technology will help create awareness and support. This project is a part of the Listening Post Collective—a nationwide network of innovative, community-driven, civic engagement projects.
