Participatory Video



The methodology is focused on supporting a community-driven response to effect the social change they aspire to. This enables participation by anyone regardless of their literacy level, physical ability, age or background. It brings people together to explore issues, voice concerns or simply to be creative and tell stories.

Participants identify and analyse important issues in their community using short videos and messages directed and filmed by the participants. This initiates a process of analysis and change that celebrates local knowledge and practice, whilst stimulating creativity within and beyond the community.

Community screenings and discussions create spaces for the objectives to be validated, questioned and challenged. This creates fertile grounds for radical shifts in opinion, attitude and behaviours.
