Participatory Video

15 May 2020

Participatory video (PV) is one of the key, visual methods used by Participate partners to structure their participatory research processes with people living in poverty. PV involves a range of video production and screening activities, which drive an iteratively evolving process of exploration and dialogue on shared issues.

It can be empowering because it provides an accessible way for a group to take action on their own concerns, through deepening their understanding, engaging and motivating their wider community, and also shaping and creating their own films, in order to communicate their messages and perspectives to decision-makers and the public.
