RE-THINK: First Impressions1):The idea was to install a Community Radioand a Telecentre together to take advantageof the synergies between the twocomponents.The project wanted to proof that it waspossible to create a venue (in the ruralareas) where everyone could accessinformation, even of the world out there.
