DiSCO Neighborhoods Project

Digital Sister Cities Online (or DiSCO) is a collaboration between Bay Area Video Coalition and CDI, a leading social action NGO in Brazil. Our goal in this project was to show how the digital link between San Francisco and Brazil could also be a personal connection to sharing culture and creating art while developing real-world job skills. Over the summer, five high school students in San Francisco collaborated with their counterparts in Sao Paulo. To show San Francisco in their eyes, the students used camera phones to document their neighborhoods, using the universal language of images and music. Please enjoy their work.
