This Remote Participatory Video online course is a 3-week programme specifically designed for key personnel in NGOs, government, UN agencies and private sector organisations.

Participants will experience and learn how to facilitate a remote participatory video process. The online training will be very practical; each week will follow a cycle of learning by doing, feedback and reflection. By the end of the training, participants will have completed a participatory film that is ready to be shared for an online screening event.

"Participatory video allows the voices of people facing crisis to be heard, for those who want to listen."Roberto Castillo, Researcher

As an introduction to this course we will be holding a FREE Workshop on the 19th January 2022, Wednesday at 10:00 – 11:30 GMT. You can register for this workshop on this link.

Why choose this course?

Participatory video captures what surveys, questionnaires and bar charts fail to communicate: the human stories and voices of the people. There is an increasing need to listen to these voices and have them visualised for a deeper understanding and learning of monitoring, evaluation and learning processes. People's emotions touch on and make a difference in decision-making processes, a report disappears in the drawer.

This training is for professionals (in communication, monitoring, evaluation, management, learning, or technical expertise) working in humanitarian crisis intervention or on development projects, where people centred in-depth stories provide added value for baseline assessment, monitoring & evaluation, communication and advocacy. If you have an interest in and/or a passion for photography and video, this course is for you.
