Chris Lunch is a participatory video specialist and enthusiast, a modern day alchemist in the field of international development. He believes in the power of combining technology with participation to shift awareness, galvanise communities and unleash hidden energy for positive individual and collective change.
"This is not a video camera" features the the topsy turvy world of participatory video - where the subjects of a film become the directors; where passive recipients of aid become active changemakers; and where the social enterprise he co-founded, InsightShare, has chosen: 'Make mistakes', 'Lose control' and 'Have fun', as its core values.
This is a TEDx event, where TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. This event is one of the local, self-organized events which are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
