Footage Foundation is a global nonprofit that seeks to amplify the voices of unheard young people and their communities with a focus on girls and young women (www.footageyouth.org).
Specifically, we design impactful, sustainable social change programs that use local technology and expressive multimedia tools (such as mobile digital storytelling) to bring the underrepresented voices and experiences of young people into conversations on the world’s most challenging issues, including violence against women, gender equality, and education.
Our flagship program Girl-talk-Girl (www.girltalkgirl.org), funded by the U.S. Department of State, works with brave young women in NYC and St. Petersburg, Russia, and focuses on illuminating their experiences with gender-based violence by creating an international platform for dialogue. We are currently expanding this program by training young women as mobile digital storytelling leaders who themselves extend the initiative and spark further dialogue. Girl-Talk-Girl has been shown to increase participants’ compassion, understanding, and confidence, and reminds young women that they are not alone in their experiences as it helps them find comfort in the global community. Like in all of our Footage initiatives, young women form a grass-roots movement with storytelling and compassion at the core.
Four social science PhDs at the University of Cambridge founded Footage; as such all of our programs are underpinned by rigorous, cutting-edge research and theory on social change, transformation, and impact.
