Video-Co-Lab offers a diverse range of training services that empower individuals and communities to tell their stories with impact and authenticity. We focus on building safe, interactive learning groups that listen and support the sharing of stories that need to be heard. Our bespoke workshops and courses equip participants with the skills and knowledge needed to create compelling videos and audios that drive knowledge exchange, outreach and community engagement.

Video-Co-Lab work with a variety of organisations to support network and community-building. As one recent example, we worked with the Global Partnership Network (GPN) to develop two online courses for an international network of civil society organisations, collectively working towards the 17th United Nations Sustainable Development Goal.
The first course focussed on the practicalities of “Video-making to support communication processes in the GPN”. The second course was seminar-based, on the topic of “Participatory Video (PV) as a method for collaborative research and community engagement”.
Through this collaboration, we developed a series of Open Access Handbooks.
