Cover of a book by Jackie Shaw and Clive Robertson. Participatory Video is a comprehensive guide to using video in group development work.

It features over 60 exercises, explaining clearly the procedure to 
follow, the time needed and the value of each activity. It includes 
practical advice on:

  • video equipment and how to use it 
  • teaching technical skills to group members 
  • running long-term projects
