Sustainability ‘SparkCatcher’ – Communicating with authenticity and impact, on-camera
5th to 6th October 2016
The complexity of the inter-related issues around Sustainability – of environmental degradation, poverty, hunger and inequality to name only a few – raise intractable organisational, social and political challenges related to money, power and politics that are often overwhelming. Equally overwhelming can be the sense of isolation and helplessness experienced by dedicated professionals in this field. Whatever your sustainability background, ambition or specialism, you will face common and recurring challenges:
- How can I have a real impact, and with whom might I usefully collaborate?
- Why is it so difficult to ‘sell’ these ideas in my organisation and community?
- How do I cope with the size, complexity and difficulty of this work without feeling overwhelmed and creatively exhausted?
In this two-day gathering, we will draw heavily on the unique potential of on-camera film work (a process involving the use of video portrait making and documentary film techniques to help us pay considered attention to someone as they authentically express themselves) to help us explore how we can elicit our authenticity; and also, how we can speak with more personal presence, on topics of political importance.
