Taught by Sabine Hellmann, a participatory video specialist from InsightShare in the UK, participants of this ten-day course will experience, explore and practice a wide range of creative games and group exercises that are fun but also encourage creativity, collective decision-making and the exchange of knowledge. Designed around experiential learning, this course aims to develop participants’ capacity to deliver all aspects of the participatory video process, including planning, facilitation and participatory editing. Includes an opportunity to practice in the field during a two-day participatory video exercise.

WHAT IS PARTICIPATORY VIDEO?
Participatory video (PV) is a set of techniques used to involve a group or community in shaping and creating their own film. Making a video can be easy, fun and accessible and a good way of bringing people together to explore issues, voice concerns or tell stories. Participatory video can engage and mobilise marginalised people and help them implement their own forms of sustainable development based on local needs. The key aspect of PV is its participative and democratic dimension. In this course, participants will expand their current filmmaking skills to learn how to promote equality, ethics and fair representation when helping communities to find their own voices.
