Pakistan Calling

Pakistan Calling is a project aiming to increase awareness and support for Pakistani civil society organisations, and activists, working to tackle the country’s many pressing social problems. It hopes to promote cross-cultural dialogue and community trust in the UK by profiling the many different faces of Pakistan and supporting filmmakers working in areas such as arts, social welfare, and citizen journalism. Pakistan Calling builds on a project run by the RSA and The Samosa. It provides a platform for film-makers in Pakistan and the UK, and articulates the many relationships between Britain and Pakistan. Events in Lahore and Karachi affect families and communities in Bradford and Manchester, and Pakistan Calling is aiming to build stronger links between Pakistani social projects, the British Pakistani diaspora, and a wider group of social entrepreneurs in the UK, fostering positive dialogue about Pakistan in Britain.
