This is a regular public update of the Video4Change network, a network of human rights activists, journalists, trainers, and video practitioners who create and use video to affect social change.
The Video4Change Network hosted a five-day gathering of grassroots video practitioners in South Africa. Watch the video report.
EngageMedia’s video lead King Catoy interviewed Nick Lunch, the co-founder of InsighShare and one of the pioneers of Participatory Video.
EngageMedia, running up to the release of the Bahasa Indonesia version of the Video for Change Impact Toolkit, facilitated a Co-Creation Lab in Jakarta for 14 Indonesian video practitioners.
I was humbled and blown away by this insanely talented, motivated, and experienced group of people, all fighting in their own way for what is right. It seems that many of these activists are fighting familiar struggles and facing similar issues across borders.
On October 9, 2019, forty activists & participatory video practitioners from Africa & beyond arrived at Bertha Foundation’s Retreat in Stellenbosch, Capetown, South Africa for the #video4change Grassroots Gathering. Egbert Wits writes what happened on that day.
