The Durban Community Video Collective (DCVC) is an informal network based at the Centre for Civil Society (CCS), University of KwaZulu-Natal. Our collective mission is to promote video as a tool for social change, education, creativity and community advocacy. More specifically, we seek to empower individuals and communities by facilitating the creation of public grassroots media production.

Communities, students and organisations in Durban are benefiting from
free video training workshops through the Centre for Civil Society’s
ongoing ‘Durban Community Video Collective’ project. Based at the
University of KwaZulu-Natal, the initiative has provided basic video
skills training to over 100 community-based youths and activists.
