Feb. 22-26: WITNESS to Participate in Online Conversation on Video for Change and Impact
From February 22-26, 2016, WITNESS program director Sam Gregory and engagement coordinator Sarah Kerr will participate in an online conversation hosted by New Tactics in Human Rights and EngageMedia titled Video for Change and Impact.
The conversation will run continuously throughout the week and is open to all. Learn more and join in on the action here!
The use of video as a tool for creating social change is determined by the impact that video can have on individuals. Understanding the intended and unintended consequences, both positive and negative, of the use of video in advocacy efforts is critical to its implementation in successful social change.
This online conversation will evaluate how impact can be created and how individuals and organizations can measure, monitor, and evaluate the impact of their video for change efforts. Video for Change and Impact conversation leaders will also explore the stages at which impact can occur (research, training, production, filming, and screening); discuss how to design appropriate strategies; the importance of ethics in the video creation process; and the differences between the Global South and Global North and how these differences affect impact.
