Participatory Video Workshop

We graduated w/ 24 participants, Joseph Vincent Suarez was our mentor. It was held from Nov 7-11 @ Palacio del Sur.

The Participatory Video Workshop focuses on storytelling through videograpy.

SUGPAT was able to gather and teach 24 Out-of-School youth learners, aged 15-24 coming from different ethnic backgrounds, religious affiliations and sexual orientations.
The PV workshop taught the participants how to creatively build a story from the influence on their current community issues then transforming it into a short film.

In addition, the workshop made use of the module on discrimination, diversity and intercultual harmony. It culminated with a film festival showcasing the outputs of the learners.

5 films were produced by the participants.
