“InsightShare offers a great PV training. When I was not able to attend in person, they were extremely helpful in trying to find an appropriate solution for me, which lead to me attending one-to-one coaching sessions. Sole was my Coach, and I could not be happier with my overall experience. She was knowledgeable, helpful, caring and friendly. For anyone interested in PV, InsightShare is the place to go, and if you get lucky, you will also meet Sole!”- Sammia Poveda, Lecturer, Geography Department, University of Sheffield

What can we do?

Our team of experienced facilitators and project managers are available to assist organisations or individuals to deepen and optimise their participatory video practice to achieve greater impacts.

Here are some ways we could help:

Evaluating current practice and conducting a needs assessment. We can assist you to scrutinise past/ongoing projects and identify areas for improvement and development.

Designing effective projects and processes based upon best practice models. We can work with you to explore the aims and objectives of participatory video within your organisation and current programming, and devise strategies for improving integration and uptake. We can assist you in managing common pitfalls and challenges, developing appropriate project management tools, integrating evaluation and learning mechanisms, building sustainability strategies, and optimising outcomes for all stakeholders.

Coaching in participatory video applications and adaptations. We are available to provide advice and training in various approaches and applications, such as using participatory video for:

  • Advocacy (including Rights-Based Approaches)
  • Community needs assessments
  • Horizontal exchanges (community-to-community / peer-to-peer)
  • Video proposals (community-led)
  • Cultural affirmation & resilience
  • Monitoring and evaluation
  • Conflict resolution
  • Network development and strengthening
