ASSIST joins MTV EXIT and Visayan Forum in conducting Media Camp on Human Trafficking

4 11 2011

Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) joined MTV EXIT Foundation and the Visayan Forum Foundation in conducting a media camp for the Movement of Anti-Trafficking Advocates (MATA) at the JesCom Media Center of the Ateneo de Manila University from October 26 to 29, 2011.

Highlights of the media camp include lectures on the value of digital activism, media resources available for human trafficking advocates, strategic media campaign planning, and workshops based on their interests: advocacy video-making under filmmaker and musician RA Rivera, songwriting under lawyer-musician Pochoy Labog, theater under Kiko Miranda, Graphic Design under Micheline Rama, and journalism under journalist and filmmaker Jim Libiran.

On the final day, let the group polish their anti-trafficking campaign material: for graphic design, catchy and meaningful template design and logo; for songwriting, a song in Filipino that tells the story of a distraught survivor; for theater, a performance about a victim of cybersex trafficking; for film and journalism, a short video on the power of the media in promoting the anti-trafficking advocacy among the youth.

The activity is organized in partnership with Dakila, Inter-agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) and supported by AustralianAID and USAID.#
