Able Voices: Participatory photography as a tool for inclusion

Practical and ethical guidelines for anyone wishing to ensure that their photography workshops are inclusive.

This resource is intended to provide practical and ethical guidelines for anyone wishing to ensure that their photography workshops are inclusive, whether they are working exclusively with disabled students or with mixed ability groups. The advice and case studies presented here are collected from over 10 years of projects run by PhotoVoice with a range of specialist partner organisations. We have endeavoured to draw down core principles that can be applied in all projects, and separately demonstrate through specific examples how these may work in practice. The design and production of this resource has been funded by the international charity World Vision as part of the Able Voices project, working with young people with differing requirements for inclusion.
