About me and my work: I am Doel Jaikishen, a development professional working at the intersection of communications, partnerships and narrative shifts for social change, in response to complex social justice needs and concerns. Especially through YUVA’s narrative change festival ComplexCity, four editions of which I have helped anchor with the core organising team, we have tried to shift how the city’s urban poor are perceived in cities. Although our efforts are still in their early stages, they have offered useful learnings about the critical role of arts and culture to re-imagine narratives and how they can be framed and shared.
