We have Participatory Video methodologies at our core, which honour informed consent and the involvement of all parties to tell a story. Using video as a form of documentation allows space for all voices to contribute to the story, regardless of literacy or language.
Stories have been around for as long as we can remember. They pass valuable information on from one generation to the next, between villages, across the world. They bring us together, they give us something to believe in, they help us to make sense of the world. Stories matter. Who is telling them matters.
Artists, poets, musicians, writers, crafters, film makers, photographers, designers, foodies, storytellers, scientists, botanists, oceanographers, surfers, skaters, nature lovers, teachers, bakers and candlestick makers – we are surrounded by such a rich human library right here in our hood.
