Throughout the camp, there was a team of volunteer campers busily working away conducting video and audio interviews of their fellow participants. Everyone at camp had fascinating stories to tell, and there were some amazing projects being worked on. The aim was to collect and document some of these stories and projects while we had everyone together in one place.
We looked at how participants are using information as evidence in their advocacy work across a range of themes, such as environmental justice, gender-based violence, and technology in transparency and accountability initiatives.
One afternoon, there was a filmed discussion, 'The Protest Salon', where a handful of individuals from countries that have experienced wide-spread protests shared their experiences and opinions and answered audience questions. Based on this variety of content, a multi-media micro magazine is being produced, featuring 24 stories on how activists around the world are combining evidence with imagination to create campaigns that influence.
