Exploring well-being narratives through participatory video in Lagos

I was part of a team of facilitators from the Bartlett Development Planning Unit at University College London and Justice & Empowerment Initiatives (JEI), a Lagos-based NGO, to realise a workshop that explored the impact of the threat of evictions on the wellbeing of residents.


The workshop utilised participatory video as an action-learning methodology to consider a number of questions, namely: How people have faced the threat of evictions in Nigerian cities? What role has/could participatory well-being analysis through participatory video play in the urban poor’s struggles to secure tenure and avoid forced evictions?
