A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
"Participatory Video unleashes the potential for society to be creative and to communicate it's ideas"
INTERVIEW extract with MELISSA STERRY
Futurologist, sustainable innovation strategist and award-winning social entrepreneur Melissa Sterry, a design graduate, founded sustainable innovation think tank, consultancy and incubator Societás in 2004 as a platform to launch groundbreaking new initiatives engaging the creative industries
"PV is a change agent - it can motivate people - it starts to challenge their thinking processes, their values - it is the start of a journey
It will grow in influence - pretty much anyone can get together with others - video will add further interest - engage the senses
Melissa offered one of the Provocations at the first Inter.ACT Residency - a presentation intended to spark debate and approach some of the key topics around Participatory Video & Media from a different perspective.
"We should explore and consider PV - in my work it's something I will be thinking about in terms of communication strategies - how we inform audiences about issues.
Where we're going I don't know - but I think these are exciting times"
