Digital Media Training for African LGBTI
We have great news! This is an Open Call for LGBTI organisations across Africa to apply and to take part in a series of trainings that is possible through our partnership with UN Free & Equal
None On Record and UN Free & Equal’s purpose of the multi-media training is to equip LGBT 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 be conducting this training in both English and French. Together, None on Record and the selected organisation will work on a project developed by group members. 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.
•Only LGBT organisations may apply. Individual applications will not be accepted.
•Groups do not need to be officially registered, but must show that they are an established group and have run programs in the past.
•Organisations must be based in West and Central Africa.
•Organisations should have an idea of how they will use the skills acquired through the training, both for a project that the group will work on during the training, and in future programming.
•No previous media experience is necessary.
•No equipment is necessary, as None on Record will provide the required technology.
•Participants will be selected on the basis of organisations’ interest in the use of media for advocacy and documentation, and the clarity and innovation of their media project proposal.
To apply, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short summary of your organisation’s location, focus and past projects. Include a one-page concept note of a digital media project you would like to undertake: what type media you would like to use, the target audience, the security concerns involved, and the goal or expected results of your project.
Submissions can be made in English and French.
