Responding to a query at the Anthrodesign group, I collated this list of projects/resources on slums in Bangalore. Does anyone know of any other projects or research being done in this area? Do let me know. Thanks!

Hi, We are a group of social documentary photographers/videographers. We are profs from the New England School of Photography and are looking to construct a workshop in India (Mumbai, Bangalore, Bhubaneswar). We make available all our media that we collect to the NGOs and relief orgs that assist us.
Do you know anybody who could help or be part of it.
