By Any Media Necessary: Mapping Youth and Participatory Politics

Invisible Children


Invisible Children (IC) is a youth-driven media-based humanitarian organization for peace and development in Uganda that employs what Stephen Duncombe calls "ethical spectacle" to engage participants. IC has its roots in a documentary film created by three founders which encourages young audiences to participate and take action. Participatory in its approach, IC includes members in the generation of ideas, materials, and incorporates them in the media products themselves.
See Sangita Shresthova's By Any Media Necessary chapter on IC, "Watch 30 Minute Video on the Internet, Become Social Activist" for more on the organization.
You can also check out some of the MAPP team's interviews with attendees of IC's 2013 Fourth Estate Summit as well as some of IC's original media below.
