While doing the essay for Media Technology and public spheres I came across a charity called PhotoVoice, who do amazing work in the field of participatory photography with marginalized groups worldwide. Have signed up for a three day workshop in London in February which I am very excited about. This could evolve into a piece of work for my second project as was thinking about doing a documentary style project with some kind of humanitarian slant. We shall see!!
From their website...."The courses are designed for those who want to learn more about participatory photography methods and participatory photography as a tool for social change. The workshop content will draw on PhotoVoice’s award winning expertise and the extensive learning gained from running participatory photography projects with excluded communities around the world. All training will be delivered by experienced trainers who have worked on PhotoVoice projects".
