Description of project:
Participatory video (PV) is a process where stakeholders are involved in making their own video to tell their story in their own words. It gives stakeholders a direct voice using a very powerful communication medium. The participants learn to use the camera, create a storyboard, capture the footage, edit the video and disseminate it to their chosen target audiences. PV has proven to be particularly useful for marginalised stakeholders such as those in rural communities or groups such as the fisherfolk and rural women. It brings the challenges and issues facing stakeholders alive for others who may not have an opportunity to see the challenges directly. PV can be use for advocacy, monitoring and evaluation, research, exchange of ideas and building consensus.
