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 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 Participatory Video Methodology Facilitator’s Course was inspired by Insightshare’s transparent and effective methodology, and Christine Jost and Nafissa Ferdous’s Gender Toolbox, which provided guidelines for the inclusion of a conscious and balanced gender lens.
