Coordinated in partnership with People’s Voice Media, participants will develop skills in community reporting and collect stories to shape ideasand challenge perceptions. In particular we will be exploring the use of digital media, for instance making short videos about people’s viewpoints on specific issues or life experiences.
Who are People’s Voice Media?
People’s Voice Media specialise in gathering, curating and mobilising stories of people to provide insight that influence and inform people and organisations.
As part of this they run training and coordinate the Institute of Community Reporters, a network of people who have been equipped to share experiences on a range of issues in a responsible and impactful way.
This weekend will be facilitated by one of the People’s Voice Media trainers, Matt Bell.
After the weekend those who have taken part will have the opportunity to become an accredited Community Reporter.
There will also be other ways for participants to stay involved in NACCOM Advocacy work and we hope skills gained will be also be put into practice at a local level too.
Accommodation, Travel and Food are all included. But hurry, there are only 10 spaces available and we need to know who is coming by the 9th November.CLICK HERE TO REGISTER INTEREST
We will run a small waiting list if needed and will be in touch if you are on this.
