Participatory video to kick-off the dialogue about 'The future of work'

During the summer of 2019, professionals participating in the 'Art of Agile' network developed a script and a story about 'the Future of Work'. On the 27th September, 2019 a short film was shot about the 'Computer of the Future'.  Watch the movie;
The story tells from the perspective of 1984, when people in a company look 35 years forward on how the future of 2019 will look like. This film formed the kick-off of the 'Art of Agile' meeting about 'The Future of Work', which was held on the 3rd December, 2019 where all participants contributed towards a joint piece of Art visualizing 'The Future of Work' in 2055, 2090 and 2125.

We are using video in our M & E system!

Simon started working with us to train grantees in participatory video. Amazingly, with the first training week participants produced 5 stakeholder videos of 5 minutes each, and had shared these in support of community dialogue about basic service improvements. We were all impressed with the empowering effect of participatory video. With Simon's recommendations, we have started using the video content in our M & E system (behavior change and service improvement results).
