From 4 – 6 September 2013, SocialTIC, together with WITNESS, will be holding a video4change gathering in Mexico. It will be hosted at the Centro de Derechos Humanos Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez in Mexico City.
They have invited video activists from Mexico and Central America to attend the event. The invitation (in Spanish) can be found here: http://socialtic.org/post/57482805107/convocatoria-para-la-reunion-de-video-para-el-cambio
Members of the video4change network, Small World News and Digital Democracy, will also be there.
This is the first of three video4change gatherings that will be hosted by the network members. A second one is being planned in India by Video Volunteers in December. The third one will possibly happen in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The general aim of these gatherings is to create spaces where video activists from specific countries or sub-regions can share lessons, best practices and insight into how video can be used to influence social change.
