7-day Participatory Video Workshop for Trainees/Trainers

Participatory Video is a media tool with great potential to empower individuals, peer groups and communities. It can create a space for marginalized groups within a social system. The realized film becomes the mouthpiece of the participants and encourages dialogue between different social groups and thus helps dissolve prejudices and stereotypes.

Participatory Video (PV) is not about just handing out some cameras and teaching some basic filming skills to participants. In fact, there are several important elements that need to be taken into account for PV to be truly empowering and participatory.

The potential and the benefits of PV don't lie primarily in the final product (the video) but in the process that have been undertaken by the participants in order to make the video. This process involves different stages of empowerment: The group decides what message they want to work on, whom they would like to address the film to and what the purpose of the final video should be. The whole process of taking part in a Participatory Video project enables the participants to reflect on their respective lives and living conditions. They deal with important topics that are moving their lives.

A worlwide usage of the PV-approach has the mission of advocacy. In this regard, it brings more positive messages into the world and it is a tool for conflict resolution. In any case it empowers participants,  gives them a voice, makes their issues visible and opens opportunities for dialogue. It is a  strong tool to empower and strengthen marginalized individuals like immigrants, prisoners, school dropouts, homeless people,  refugees, unemployed young people, seniors (just to mention a few). 

The training is very useful for trainers and teachers who work with vulnarable groups in adult education. It is mainly a practical workshop where the trainees learn all about the different elements of Participatory Video step by step.

Facilitator: Lisa Glahn, filmmaker and experienced in PV as a trainer and facilitator.

Short videos and contents are directed and filmed by participants 6. Partners explore opportunities of how video messages and films can play a role in their work. They will develop a possible PV project for their target group. 7. (Optional) Trainees develop and realize pilot PV projects with key groups of their work
Erwartete Ergebnisse: 
The workshop introduces the approach and methods of Participatory Video. Theoretical introduction alternates with practical exercises. Trainees learn how to facilitate different groups in realizing a film in a participatory and democratic way. They learn basic skills of camera usage, filming and editing. Practical work includes making films of short duration, video messages or animation clips. An important focus lies on the development of a project idea in respect to their respective working field, which might be realized during the second phase. The workshop is based on learning by doing with (external) inputs and at the same time it serves as a practical example of how such a workshop can be facilitated. For those who want to apply their PV-skills with their target group immediately after the training, Phase II and III are the next steps. (Optional) Phase II: Realization (up to six months) Participants of the training realize their PV project. Online supervising is available. (Optional) Phase III: Experience exchange Trainees show their videos online or at a location, where they exchange their achievements and their challenges, they discuss possibilities to support each other and further needs for capacity building.
