WITNESS Co-Hosts Video For Change Gathering in South Africa

From October 9–14, WITNESS joined InsightShare, Engage Media and Video Volunteers in hosting the 2019 Video4Change Grassroots Gathering in Cape Town, South Africa.

The gathering drew over 30 delegates from 16 countries, African indigenous communities and the Video4Change network. Video practitioners learned and shared proven methodologies of Video4Change. An expansion of the Pan African Living Cultures Alliance (PALCA) was also resolved.

Our Africa Program Manager, Adebayo Okeowo, led the WITNESS team in a session on Video as Evidence and stressed the importance of a collection plan as a best practice when seeking to document evidence of violations against communities.
