We’ve made some big transitions at EngageMedia over the last few months.
In June 2012, EngageMedia co-founded the Video4Change network with 14 other organisations. This year, we’ll be working with the MIT Center for Civic Media and Open Documentary Lab to research how social-change video creates impact and how that impact can be measured. We’ll also be developing v4c.org as a umbrella space for the network, as well as adding a host of video4change guides and tools.
