The Lambeth Hub incorporates a large workshop room, video editing suites and a resource centre. It is also the location for InsightShare’s main office and the base for much of the UK team. Through the Hub we are able to run various Participatory Video projects with different groups from across the borough of Lambeth and beyond.
At present we provide the following regular projects / activities:
The Video Coaches programme trains young people, aged 16-21yrs from low income households in Lambeth who are currently unemployed and outside of formal education to become Participatory Video facilitators for local community groups.
Participants learn all the skills necessary to create videos in groups, before learning to facilitate Participatory Video projects themselves. As part of their training, participants undertake a community placement where they begin to practice their facilitation skills. By the end of the programme each Video Coach undertakes a post-training assignment within a local grassroots community project, helping their peers and neighbours use video for positive social change.
The Video Coaches programme is funded by The Walcot Foundation
The Lambeth Hub provides a free community cinema for anyone to watch videos on a range of themes and subjects. Typically we will screen one or two Participatory Videos from our local or international projects alongside a more mainstream feature film, which helps us to attract new audiences for community video.
For more information about the Community Cinema please email us.
Our weekly Video Club sessions enable local residents to create videos in groups on a range of subjects and issues. The Video Clubs provide a space for participants to learn gradually, get to know one another and explore any issues they identify as important.
