Alinah Azadeh acts as debt collector and servant to The Book of Debts - a large tome that she fills in each location she visits with the stories of debts owed by the people of that community.

Causa Justa is a social-justice documentary series that airs on 16 countries on the Latin American news network, TeleSUR.
THE SWARM spent a week in Venezuela working intensively with the production team on creating a transmedia strategy for the programme's next series in conjunction with Televisión América Latina.
During 2012 and 2013, THE SWARM facilitated a series of workshops across the UK for the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.
The workshops were full-day collaborative activities designed to help build strong ideas and teams with arts projects, technology providers, and researchers.
THE SWARM is proud to be a pro-bono sponsor and advisor to Endz2Endz - the place for young urban talent.
The project - started by 4 youths from South London housing estates - starts from the belief that showcasing positive stories about young people and giving them a home for showcasing their talent will promote positive behaviour as an alternative to violence.
