Commentary on Participatory Video

Jay Mistry


Participatory Video (PV) is a methodological tool to collect more meaningful and relevant data through the
direct engagement of people in the research process, while at the same time drawing on accessible means of
visual communication to represent the voices and perspectives of those involved. In this article, I first
describe the process of PV using my experiences from an ongoing EU-funded research project and how I
translate these experiences to teaching PV to Geography Masters students in a two day workshop. I then
reflect on how the different stages/phases of PV contribute to giving Geography students an understanding
of some of the challenges and opportunities of using PV, as well as wider learning on ethics and
positionality that are critical to their research career development.
