Visual Journey at the ABCD Unconference: New filmmakers shared their experience filming their community’s story of change with their phones
The Constellation is made up of many stars, communities that are taking action, addressing global challenges in our local context, using our own strengths to find solutions that are within our reach. In The Constellation, we are sharing the solutions that we are finding. One way to share is through storytelling, through small movies. Hence the project of Visual Journey, which was at the centre of attention on Wednesday, the 18th of October 2023, on the occasion of the yearly ABCD Unconference.
Faulu Productions is a community-based organisation based in the Kakuma refugee camp in northwestern Kenya (team in the picture). The Faulu team intends to eradicate early pregnancy and forced marriage observed in most camp-based communities. The team reached out to The Constellation to take part in the Go Girl programme where the SALT-CLCP methodology supports girls and people around them in finding solutions and establishing behaviour change so that their health and safety are improved.

Ordinary people are achieving extraordinary things
Around the world people take ownership of Corona
From Asia, to Europe, the US, and Africa, we see a wave of people standing up in solidarity. Individuals, families, and groups are taking action adapted to their context and to the resources that are available. They stay safe from the virus and care for each other.
The Constellation handed over the camera and the microphone to such local heroes. In eleven short clips they share their good practices. Those are the raw stories of fear and courage behind the masks.

Dorcus Beads: Bringing Back Life
A group of women living in Kenya come together to ‘bring back life’ to their community. Creativity, love, and collaboration changes their lives one by one. A story captured by a team of young people of the community.
This short movie is part of a project called Visual Journey where communities go through an explicit process of joint learning from their experience and visually capture their story so that it becomes an inspirational tool for the community and for a worldwide audience.
