Participatory Video
Images that Transform and Empower

First Edition
Edited by:

July 2003 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
At a time when everyone is talking about new information and communication technologies, a book which reminds us of how participatory video is a powerful catalyst for development, is a welcome change. The contributors convincingly demonstrate that participatory video is a very effective tool for the development and transformation of disadvantaged individuals and communities.

The volume reports the work of numerous individuals and organizations who have used video to bring about changes in attitudes and social behavior, and helped communities to identify development solutions that are within their reach. The book takes into account the wide range of approaches used in video to transform people, relationships, perceptions, and understandings. The contributors share their experiences based on intensive, field-level projects, and through insights gained from extensive research, study and reflection.
