Bespoke PhotoVoice Training

We can deliver training designed around your project needs

Tailored Training from PhotoVoice

If you or your organisation are thinking of running your own participatory photography project, but would like some support or insight into developing it, PhotoVoice is able to provide a bespoke training course and additional consultancy support.

This is available as a 4-day in-person course (6 days online), which uses PhotoVoice’s acclaimed training course as its starting point, with key aspects of the curriculum tailored to the specific needs of your project or organisation.

These courses suit teams or multiple staff members from within the same organisation/project, and are only available as commissioned activities. We can deliver the training in person for up to 12 attendees, or online for up to 10.

Online training is delivered via our learning platform PhotoVoice CONNECT, which includes four 3.5 hour long live sessions and independent learning which includes videos, reading and reflective assignments.

This course will also involve some engagement with key individuals within the commissioning organisation to ensure that the training meets their requirements. They can be delivered anywhere in the world in-person or online.

If required, additional consultancy days can be agreed following the training. These can be used to provide reactive support during your project delivery.

"Really understanding the fun and power of photos. It was good to do so much reflecting."

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, July 2022

"I enjoyed being part of the group, learning about how other people's thoughts, experiences through photos. Also the training has really made me think about how we will deliver it to particular groups, or how we would have to adapt."

West Argyll, Scotland, May 2023

"I wasn't 100% sure what to expect, but I was 'curious'. What was delivered was above + beyond. I really enjoyed adding text to photos and how powerful this can make the image - also the facilitator's enthusiasm + wealth of knowledge."

Jersey, September 2023

"It will be very useful, especially for community relationships and organisation, building trust with each other, and the satisfaction of the community."

Hargesia, Somaliland, December 2019

"The facilitator was fantastic at keeping the group going, interacting with everyone and keep energy levels high. So much fantastic knowledge, information, and powerful stories."
