“We are Teachers” is a short film made by a group of rural primary school teachers in Malawi. The film was made as part of a collaboration between The Open University, Catcher Media Social, the NGO Humana People to People and its local member organisation DAPP Malawi.
The year 2015 marks the deadline of the global campaign of Education for All (EFA). At this critical moment in the international education narrative, this collaboration piloted the practice of participatory video as a research and advocacy tool. The purpose was to explore how collaborative film-making can provide a platform for incorporating rural teachers' voices in this narrative and bring their voices closer to global policy discussions around how to enhance pupil learning.
The event is free, but places are limited. Please contact Dr Alison Buckler firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
