Follow Along During The Second Global Video for Change Convening!
This week, WITNESS will be participating in the second Video for Change Global Convening. The meeting will bring together members of the Video for Change Network and other video activists from 15 different countries and 5 continents. Participants will spend four days sharing their work and discussing ways that we can work to strengthen the video for change landscape.
This convening will specifically address topics such as how video is currently being used for social change, immediate challenges in using video, the recently completed impact research on using video for change, and how to best support and train others using video. Participants will also run and participate in skillshares on topics such as digital security, storytelling and mobile tools.
The Video for Change Network is made up of social justice-oriented organizations from across the globe. The Network was formed following the first Video for Change Global Convening in Indonesia in 2012. You can learn more about the Video for Change Network (and find lots of great training resource and other material) here.
The convening will be followed by an afternoon of panels in Mexico City on Saturday July 18th. If you are in Mexico City and interested in attending, please see the invitation here.
