One of FRB's members, World Renew/CRWRC, shared this video with us. While it does not direcly feature participants of the Laos-Xieng Khouang Program, staff from that program did participate in the workshop and their learning will impact the communities in Xieng Khouang. Mark Fennema, a World Renew staff member in Laos, shared more information on the video:
World Renew in Lao produced this video on EthnoArts in our target communities in the Phongsaly target area. We wanted to build staff capacity and appreciation for the importance of the traditional arts in the ethnic communities and how by a deeper understanding of those traditional forms for communication we can improve our own trainings. To often we provide trainings using methods that work in our own culture, without looking first at how people traditionally pass on information from one generation to the next. We sent a number of staff from Xieng Khouang to join that training and the concepts and ideas are being applied in the FRB funded project area.
