Participatory Video Palestine

Webinar: Participatory Video as a Form of Peace Education

On 26 June, Lucy Nusseibeh will share her expertise on participatory video. Lucy is the founder and executive chair, Middle East Nonviolence and Democracy (MEND) based in  East Jerusalem, focusing on nonviolence, education and media. 
She will share examples on how this methodology works – via interactive games as a way of teaching a small group to work with a camera (and also with a mobile phone) and then expanding the outreach and the impact via feedback meetings and discussions. She will provide a brief background on the complex situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories regarding peace and peace education and the need for humanization. She will also highlight the importance of the use of media for positive messaging and counteracting negative stereotypes. She will be joined by Fadya Salaheddin, who works closely with Lucy and coordinates the participatory video work at MEND. 

Date & time: 26 June 2019, 14.00 (GMT +1 / CET)
