With over a decade of experience working with youth, adults and elders in various settings, Ariel is able to design,  implement and facilitate both long and short term community video programs from start to finish. 

Participatory video is when a group or community comes together to create their own film.   The process of participatory video empowers, individuals and groups, through creative expression,  to explore issues and concerns effecting their communities  and to communicate their needs.  Participatory Video can be a highly effective tool to engage and mobilize marginalized peoples.  It is also an excellent way to preserve oral history and to tell stories creatively.
