We have discovered another website of interest to community activists. It is Worldbytes, and the website is here:
WORLDbytes is an online Citizen TV channel set up and run by the education charity WORLDwrite. Dedicated to advancing new knowledge, skills and ideas, the charity promotes excellence in citizen reporting and provides free training to volunteer-learners which combines practical film making with tackling challenging issues.
Their website says they equip their learners to:
- do justice to challenging ideas
- uncover hidden histories
- film major debates
- cover local and global issues
- create scripts and mini-productions which send up newsworthy items
Volunteer-learners are taught in the studio and out on the streets, negotiating their way in public spaces to seriously engage with fellow citizens on key issues. Contributing far more than the usual sound bites, volunteer-learners plan programmes, interview experts, academics and policy makers, create scripts for lighter hearted items, form crews and learn to disseminate and distribute their programmes worldwide.
Why not check out their website and see if their training suits you?
