It’s been a really busy two years for InsightShare. This Review consists of condensed case studies of just nine of our many projects: eight in the field, and one – the Webgathering series – in the cyber-field. We hope it gives you a good taste of our approach and work. The webgatherings (see p31) have been a new and fruitful development for us, creating a real sense of community among practitioners, enabling reflection and discussion, and promoting InsightShare’s unique contribution to the world of participatory video (PV).
Grounded in respectful long-term partnership between indigenous-led organizations and award-winning experts in participatory video, journalism, photography, and audio, Conversations with the Earth conveys local accounts of the impacts of climate change on indigenous communities, stories of the unintended consequences of imposed mitigation on local livelihoods, and examples of traditional knowledge and its value in developing appropriate responses to climate change.
This newsletter is packed with: exciting news about our meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi, reports from the latest edition of our UK-based training of trainers and a capacity building programme in Myanmar, links to new videos, photo stories and publications and more.
This is a presentation on some of the key methodological learning, strengths and challenges of using Participatory Video in gender-based violence programming and to support adolescent girls and women evaluate programming in which they are key actors.
Our Head of M&E, Soledad Muniz, contributed to this toolkit which brings together user-friendly information and practical, participatory approaches that enable adolescent girl participants in youth-serving organizations to document changes in their lives, and to provide input to shape programs.
