WITNESS and their partners, SONKE and STEPS, co-organised a gathering of 25 video activists from Sub-Saharan Africa in Cape Town, South Africa last 3 – 5 March 2014. According to WITNESS the gathering aimed “to create a space for video activists to share experiences, network, inspire and learn from one another and foster collaboration. Furthermore, we will support these activists and their groups to stay connected through the global V4C (Video-for-Change) network, as well as through our new regional Video-for-Change community.”   

The South Africa video4change gathering was attended by video activist from Botswana, Cameroo, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
