Video Advocacy Workshop

The International Accountability Project, WITNESS, EarthRights International and the Unit for Social and Environmental Research at Chiang Mai University, Thailand are pleased to announce the call for applications for the Video Advocacy Workshop (VAW). This workshop will train people in WITNESS’ highly effective methodology for integrating video into human rights advocacy campaigns. WITNESS uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. It empowers people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change.

This workshop is for Asian community activists, civil society advocates and filmmakers who want to use video in an advocacy campaign challenging unjust forced eviction in the name of development.
