In June 2012, we opened our Africa office in Nairobi, Kenya. Our Kenya team focuses on training LGBTI activists and community members in digital media.
None on Record: Stories of Queer Africa is pleased to invite East African LGBTI organisations to apply to participate in a six-week multi-media training. The training will take place in mid-2013.
The purpose of the multi-media training is to equip LGBTI organisations with the technology, skills and experience necessary to document their work and the movement in their region, and to produce media for advocacy.
None on Record will conduct the training in the organisation’s place of work, in order to tailor the training to the situation on the ground. Together, NOR and the selected organisation will work on a project developed by group members.
NOR uses the citizen journalism approach to build on existing media skills and allow community members with no previous journalism or media experience to share their stories with a larger audience for the first time. The group will gain skills in audio, photo and/or video documentation, depending on their organisational needs. Participants will acquire technical skills through workshops, practical exercises and documentation in the field.
If you are an LGBTI African and live in one of the five East African countries (Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda) check out our call for proposals for activist training.
