Participatory media can be used to start or deepen dialogues, gather and/or validate qualitative data about a conflict context, and enable perspective-taking of different groups and of community storytellers. This training will outline ways in which a participatory media process can both facilitate individual and collective reflection on issues participants believe are critical to peace in their community, and provide participants with the skills they need to construct and represent a story of their choice. A strong focus is given towards participatory video as a baseline approach, with applications towards other content production.


Understand what participatory media is and the strategic value it can add to peacebuilding
Become well-versed in Participatory Video as one method for achieving core peacebuilding objectives: facilitating dialogue, integrating different perspectives, and identifying connectors and dividers in a community.
Discover basic strategic communication principles on dissemination, purpose, and impact
Gain confidence with tools, strategies, and illustrative examples to design and run a participatory media process.


This course invites peacebuilders from all backgrounds interested in exploring participatory media in an open and active way. No prior experience is necessary, just the willingness to listen, express, learn, and unlearn, to foster a deeper understanding together
