Organization: Streamtime (www.streamtime.org - Cecile Landman)

In the summer of 2006, Alive in Baghdad provided video cameras, 
microphones, tapestock, and training to Iraqis living in Baghdad. Since 
then, they are producing a weekly news program from Baghdad on topics 
ranging from protecting their families from death squads, to what it is 
like to be an Iraqi Police officer.

Brian Conley, the man behind Alive in Baghdad will be in Amsterdam to 
give a presentation, and tell about the ins and outs of the project in: 
De Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, April 7.  2008, 7 PM.

Alive in Baghdad employs Iraqi journalists to produce video packages 
each week about a variety of topics on daily life in Iraq. Through the 
work of a team of Americans and Iraqi correspondents on the ground, 
Alive in Baghdad shows the conflict through the voices of Iraqis. Alive 
in Baghdad brings testimonies from individual Iraqis, footage of daily 
life in Iraq, and short news segments from Iraq to you. Alive in 
Baghdad's limited staff is able to post a video every week.

Alive in Baghdad is a project of Small World News Ltd. Co. with three 
production teams, in Iraq, Syria, and Mexico, for the two news 
programs, Alive in Baghdad and Alive in Mexico.
