  • IndiaUnheard Training 2011-Goa

    176 views 2 years ago
    See the news through the eyes of those who live it. 100s of people across India’s slums and villages are telling stories about injustice and about change. They are working to solve the problems addressed in these videos. In order to do that, they need you to watch, share and act!

    You have a story and a camera. What does it take to be the voice of your community? How do you translate your story into a video? What kind of images and sounds best tell your story? How do you spin a story into a resonating document on the human condition? These are some of the questions that IndiaUnheard Community Correspondents grapple with. To find out the answers, we come together at the Training Camp. Watch Quentin Lecoqapos;s video that gives you an intimate glimpse into the IndiaUnheard Training Camp, Goa held in February 2011. An induction course for the new Community Correspondents and a refresher for the older CCs, the training camp was also a unique opportunity for the entire India Unheard network to converge from across the country at one place and meet the entire team. It was a time of learning, sharing and drawing inspiration from each other. Watch as the participants learn how to express themselves through workshops and filter issues and concerns of national importance through the filter of their own experiences. As the untold stories pass through the body of collective memories, histories and private consciences, the fog of silence is lifted and the story is heard.
