Participatory Media has changed millions of people lives across our globe.
It can be a very important and powerful tool for change.
What is Participatory Media?
Participatory media is where the audience plays an active role in the process of collecting, creating and sharing media content.
How else can it be used?
Visual reports integrate the use of elements such as stakeholder interviews, project images and graphics. These are presented in a form of a short engaging video for reporting purposes.
Video Case Studies
Video placed in the hands of the community acts as a catalyst and a mirror, initiating a process of community–led analysis, reflection and change. It fosters an open and trusting relationship between facilitators/researchers and participants giving a clear signal that they are in control & their knowledge matters.
Monitoring & Evaluation
Participatory Media makes Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) engaging, compelling and fun. Participatory Media allows for organisations to gather qualitative data that often escapes traditional M&E tools.
Benefits of Participatory Media

Builds community capacity & learning to critically evaluate & take action.
Videos are easily shared across multiple platforms, opening up new possibilities for communications at the local, regional and global levels.
