Development Communications

About Nayeem

With a Mass Communications degree from York University, Nayeem spent the last two years working within the humanitarian sector in Bangladesh with the International Organization for Migration.  Constantly looking to evolve, Nayeem has been searching for the perfect balance of creative expression and communication development. He is eager to develop and understand different forms of communication that can also correlate to the Development sector. However, this is only one side to his coin, the other side is the abstract world of creative expression and content creation.For the past 7 years, Nayeem has been working on film and photography projects, and looks forward to the MDM program to enable his creative expressions in the many diverse directions it offers. More specifically, Nayeem is interested in development of content creation and collaboration through multiple Digital Media technologies and apparatus. With special interest in Transmedia storytelling, Nayeem is always looking for ways to share and express stories Internationally, across all forms of technologies, cultures and borders.

Project Abstract

I propose to research and establish a framework that enables individuals and organizations to maximize the impacts tangible interventions and assistance can have within marginalized/at risk communities. By adding this extra layer to the framework of development efforts, we can look to better Improve and Assist the growth of a marginalized community, adding an ideological layer, worthy of a communication system, that enables a sense of community and empowerment, initiates upward mobility for future generations in addition to improving quality of life. Furthermore, the framework explores the numerous digital media technologies that can be used within communication efforts. The framework would be adaptive to any circumstance or region, as it will act as a matrix in which certain indicators will result in certain intervention methods. The goal is to be adapted into various development efforts and produce information and data in relation to the power communication can have within developing communities.
