Bridging The Digital Divide

How can using video creatively support the re-engagement in activities of those excluded by the pandemic?

Seminar Panel discussion and Workshop - South Street Arts centre* and online

The Covid pandemic has increased the digital divide exposing new inequalities. Video can be a positive tool to get people engaged in activities, support learning share ideas and develop new skills. As part of the VEP project Real Time is offering seminars and workshops to explore how video can be used particularly with vulnerable adults or in non formal settings.

The session will introduce the various approaches and resources, available through VEP including:

  • Video Production for education and training
  • Participatory Video
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Stop motion and App based Animation
  • Video and employability training

Aimed at professionals, students and volunteers particularly those working with adults and young people from vulnerable groups but would be equally useful to those in the education and training sectors.
