GFAR webinar on “Participatory Video”

15 May 2017

Our GLF team attended an excellent webinar on Participatory Video (PV), particularly on how it is used in agricultural research. Coordinated by the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), this two-hour event parsed the techniques, trials and tribulations of working with video techniques that involve stakeholders in every stage of production: from storyboarding to shooting to editing.

As the GLF is a multi-directional and multi-stakeholder forum, Participatory Video methodologies techniques fit well within our purview and goals.

If this webinar catches your interest, take your learning further with the International Livestock Research Institute’s (ILRI) Participatory Video Methodology Facilitator’s Course. These skills can disrupt the traditional top-down methodologies in development and food security work, and create media products that are responsive to the needs and desires of those who need them most.

From all of us on the GLF team: happy learning (and sharing)!
