'The Cybermohalla (Cyber Neighborhood) Project is a community of young practitioners who share each other's thoughts, ideas and creative energies in media labs located in working class areas of Delhi. The young people who come to these media labs are between the ages of 15 to 23. At the labs, they work with media forms (photography, animation, sound recordings, online discussion lists and text) to create cross-media works, texts, collages, posters and wall magazines. Their writings and images can be seen as a rich database of narrative, comment, observation, imaginative play and reflection on the contested circumstances of life in the sprawling urban metropolis of Delhi.

The project has been developed collaboratively by Sarai, a programme of the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies and Ankur - Society for Alternatives in Education. The Cybermohalla Project addresses the interface between information technology and creativity in the lives of young people who live in a highly unequal society.' - description on insert
