Video4change: Enabling Citizens to Expose Corruption and Demand Equality, Using the Tool in their Pocket

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Video4change is the use of video to empower, inform and mobilize citizens to make a better world. The workshop speakers are all leaders of the global video4change movement, running or working within organizations that have succeeded in creating new models to use video4change to fight corruption. We’ll share successful examples of how video4change has reduced corruption, including film clips, and outline the different models and methods available for using video to fight corruption, from India, Africa and South East Asia.

Video is an indisputably important tool to fight corruption. It provides irrefutable evidence, mobilizes people, is democratic and can be used even by those with minimal literacy, and smartphones are spreading fast into every corner of the world and aspect of our lives. The camera has been used to expose corruption in many famous cases, often ending the careers of highly visible public figures.

 

Yet, more can be done to create even more impact.

 

Questions we’ll explore include:


  1. What are the innovations being used to fight corruption through video?

  2. And how could they scale to millions of people being able to document corruption in a similar way, by using the smartphones in their pockets?

  3. How can we make the use of video in exposing corruption less ad hoc? Is it possible to provide structure when so much is about someone with a camera being in the right place at the right time?

  4. How is technology changing things and where does the technology need to go?
    How are people staying safe?


 

All of the workshop members are part of the Video4Change network, working together to grow the field of video4change practitioners. Learn more at www.v4c.org

Founding Director, Video Volunteers
I empower people from very marginalised background to make their own news. My organisation is one of the largest producers of video news in rural India, and it's all produced by people living below the poverty line. But it's not just news that informs, it's all about making news that leads local people to solve their own problems. We do this because we're tired of how the poor are always spoken for, rather than being able to speak for themselves... Read More →
