On the 9th of May, Sivin Communications´ Manon presented at the GFAR (Global Forum on Agricultural Research) webinar on Participatory Video.
“Participatory Video” is a form of participatory media-generation in which a group or a community creates their own video. The idea behind this is that having a video made by the actual stakeholders in a process or situation, makes the video more accessible, and would be better adapted to the target audience. The process of making the video itself is also a great way of bringing people together to explore issues.
Now, in our area of agriculture, research, and ecosystems, “Participatory Video” is not as simple as giving a couple of farmers a camera and getting a video in return after a few weeks.
GFAR has selected a number of enthusiastic speakers who will share their experiences, the pitfalls they have discovered, and how they worked around those challenges. A webinar full of tips and tricks on the what, why and how of “Participatory Video”. (GFAR)
