AbstractThis presentation will highlight thematic concerns and issues featured in videos created by over 40 participants from Hong Kong’s migrant communities of domestic workers, refugee/asylum seekers and ethnic minorities. From February to April 2017, participants were trained using visual and arts-based methodologies to create one-minute video portraits about their daily lives in the Visualizing the Voices of Migrant Women Workers participatory video workshop series in Hong Kong. As directors of these videos, each participant was responsible in all aspects of video production, including scriptwriting, directing, producing, acting, and editing. Through this process, participants reflected on issues regarding migration, labor, and family. The videos have been screened privately to participants and their friends and families in a university setting, and are now poised to be screened for a public audiences at film festivals, galleries, and academic conferences. In considering how these videos can engage various communities, we will discuss some of the tensions we have encountered between celebrating yet protecting participants and our concerns about how best to utilize these videos beyond advocacy.
