Announcement of a new free e-course on participatory video methodology
This course is intended to build capacities in local partner organizations and communities, providing them with a clear, accessible tool that will enable them to conduct their own Participatory Video (PV) workshops. Through easy-to follow, step-by-step explanations of each exercise, this course will walk you through the entire PV methodology, including establishing an effective team dynamic, discovering and learning to use video equipment, thinking critically and analytically about individual and collective lifestyles, and structuring and sharing a message with key audiences.
The course was designed and produced by Humidtropics and CCAFS, under the direction of Humidtropics’ CapDev and supported by CIAT and ILRI. It was developed by Manon Koningstein and Shadi Azadegan, with the guidance and support of Iddo Dror, Rein van der Hoek, and Jennifer Twyman, and the participation of the community members of La Danta (Somotillo, Nicaragua) and the young women of Fundación Entre Mujeres (FEM) in Estelí, Nicaragua. It was inspired by Insightshare’s transparent and effective methodology and the 2014 CCAFS/CARE International/ICRAF-produced Gender and Inclusion Toolbox by C. Jost, N. Ferdous, and T. Spicer.
