Human rights pilot video hub

Human Rights Video Hub Pilot is a joint collaboration between WITNESS and Global Voices Online. WITNESS empowers people and organisations all over the world to use video and other technologies to promote and defend human rights.

This pilot is a first step towards a larger endeavor that WITNESS is currently undertaking: the development of a Human Rights Video Hub. This Hub will be a place where anyone anywhere can upload human rights related footage video from handheld devices or laptops, to create communities and proposed calls to action around the abuses they witness.

WITNESS has announced a call for applications to participate in the inaugural Video Advocacy Institute (VAI).  The Video Advocacy Institute, is their newest initiative and the first of its kind, is an innovative program that will train human rights defenders to successfully integrate video advocacy into their social change campaigns. The VAI will be held in association with Concordia University’s Communication Studies Program and Documentary Centre.
