Re-imagination of SELF Academy 2020 during COVID19

Girls talking about Safe space
Girls talking about Safe space

In August, 2021, CREA released an animated video series named 'SELF expression' using girls' voices from interviews and the comics they created as part of the SELF academy. The videos give valuable insight into the various topics the girls discussed during the academies, what information they gained, conversations and debates they had for the first time, taboo topics that were spoken about openly, their reflection of these learnings to negotiate in their everyday lives, the creation of a safe space of sharing and non-judgemental learning along with fun and sports! 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the academy could neither be organised in-person nor virtually because of the lack of digital access and literacy. CREA used this time to develop SELF stories such as these videos, using comics made by girls in the academy, and recorded audio monologues of girls in their own voices. The videos were created on the most crucial themes in girls' lives that were addressed in-depth in the academy. 

The videos showcase strong narratives of how the participants became aware of their rights and how gender-based role expectations restrict and influence their lives, how they worked through these in the academy, often taking the process back home with them and creating ripple effects at home/community spaces. Girls have pushed back against power structures of family and community and negotiated access to technology, spoken out against violence, right to their sexual identity, mobility, bodily integrity and well-being. These videos can also be valuable resources for work and advocacy with adolescent girls, going forward.

You can find the series, as illustrated by Vidushy Yadav, on CREA’s YouTube channel. CREA is currently in the process of disseminating the video through social media, all videos have been uploaded and shared across platforms which were followed by a live session on Instagram to share the process.
