I really really enjoyed the course overall, and I felt I learnt a lot.
[I enjoyed] Interactive activities, Group participation, Open debate, Having my mind opened up
Really enjoyable – best training I’ve been on in ages. Very well structured and rich with transferable ideas.
It’s opened a completely new way of thinking about participatory photography.
“We were given inspiring examples of projects as well as exercises we could borrow and replicate with our own projects.”
“The facilitator is extremely experienced, and most of what I learned in the course was through her mentions of her experience and practical examples. I really discovered that PhotoVoice had a much stronger social change dimension than I was expecting, and it got me to think more.”
“I really enjoyed learning about the history of photovoice and about the various ways it has been used. It was also informative to see what policy makers are looking to fund in this area.”
It was good to meet a number of other people doing academic work which uses/plans to use participatory photography.
The course was great. Being both a photographer and a researcher/academic, I can see how it can be useful to both parties. I particularly liked the dialogue between practitioners and academics/researchers (as our group was a real mix of both), the whole three days we were intense (in the best possible way) and interactive
“This course was everything I hoped it would be and more. Thank you so much!”
Excellent course and would recommend it.
The 3-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to understanding, designing, managing and facilitating a participatory photography project.
