Collaborative Media Advocacy Platform (CMAP) is a collaboration between local and international community organisers, filmmakers, broadcasters, urban planners, architects, designers, university researchers and – most importantly – ordinary people from across Port Harcourt’s informal settlements.
CMAP shares the skills and technologies that allow communities to record their experiences, tell their stories and change their lives. CMAP is moved by the conviction that democratic design principles can make cities more creative and just. As a collaborative platform, CMAP’s ultimate goal is to launch community-owned initiatives to sustainability. The community radio station and facility at the heart of the Human City Project – Chicoco Radio – is formally owned by Chicoco Community Media Initiative, an incorporated board of trustees drawn from communities across the city.
