This project is currently underway and is running through the first half of 2013. We are acting on the hopeful notion that Participatory Video (PV) training methods have a positive role to play in both building ICT and communication skills among the young participants, and also in cultivating alternative geographical imaginations and nurturing hope and confidence in marginalized youth.
In the process of running two 10-day youth video training workshops in Durban (South Africa) and in Ruwa (Zimbabwe), this project is exploring imaginations and visions of the future among these young people. We are also exploring PV as a method for cultivating alternative geographical imaginations and nurturing hope and confidence.
The longer-term vision of this project is to work towards building a resource for youth video production and sharing, both at the Centre for Civil Society (CCS) in Durban and at Kufunda Village, Zimbabwe. This project is kindly funded through an Antipode Foundation Scholar-Activist Project Award.
