On the 8th of March, at a TEDx event in Brussels, InsightShare's Director Chris Lunch discussed the power of participatory video to shift awareness, galvanise communities and unleash hidden energy for positive individual and collective change. The title of the talk "This is not a video camera" takes inspiration from surrealist artist Rene Magritte's painting: Ceci n'est pas une pipe, as he asks us to re-look at what we think we know about video as a technology. Here you can read the script of the talk.
This TedX talk by our Director Chris Lunch is about the topsy turvy world of ‘participatory video’; where the subjects of a film become the directors; where passive recipients of aid become active changemakers and where we as a social enterprise have chosen: 'Make mistakes', 'Lose control' and 'Have fun', as our core values.
This animation explains the process and ethos behind the Participatory Video methodology, as practiced by InsightShare in its various projects around the world. Using simple drawings, reminiscent of the storyboards created by participants, the process of community authored video for change is detailed from conception to creation and beyond.
