EngageMedia is working with Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence to visually document the research sites of its longitudinal study and the research process.
Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) is a nine-year (2015-2024) mixed-methods longitudinal research programme exploring the gendered experiences of young people aged 10-19 years. They are following the lives of 18,000 adolescents in six focal countries, in Africa (Ethiopia, Rwanda), Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal) and the Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon).
GAGE has partnered with Engage Media to develop country specific videos and images that are representative of their research sites and of the work done by its researchers and partners. To develop the documentary film making skills of the GAGE team, country researchers and communications staff participated in a four-day workshop on photography and videography. The workshop took place in Nepal in May 2018 and was co-led by GAGE and Engage Media.
Participants learned the fundamentals of photography and videography and started planning for two GAGE visual products:
1) Visual community mappings: videos providing an overview of GAGE communities at the beginning of our longitudinal research study and over time, documenting research surroundings and contexts.
2) A day in the life of a researcher: videos documenting the research process through the eyes of a researcher, capturing ‘behind the scenes’ moments and negotiations in different contexts.
Check out the video to learn more about the capacity strengthening workshop, participants’ perspectives and GAGE communication products that will be developed.
