The Urban Resource Centre (URC) aims to democratise and disseminate grassroots knowledge, both contemporary and historical. It hosts video, photo and text archives that document urban developmental trajectories from the early 1980s. The URC has a bank of content (initially from Bombay), complemented by stories continually generated from our existing engagements. Our video and text resources aim to record the lives and livelihoods of those who are marginalised and directly impacted by developmental agendas. An important goal for us at the Centre is to find ways in which collaborative environments can be set up, so that communities can engage with the knowledge that is created alongside academic and other mainstream discursive forums.
