Regent Park Television: Kids playing GTA

Tony Walsh’s wonderful blog Clickable Culture points us to the latest episode of Regent Park Television, which is simply unmissable for anybody interested in gamers, gaming communities, and videogames. Before you click the link, here’s some background info: according to Walsh, Regent Park is ‘one of Toronto’s most troubled inner-city neighborhoods’. Not too long ago, some of the residents started an interesting project called Regent Park Television, a video report of things happening in the neighborhood that are regularly uploaded on YouTube.
