Drawing upon PhotoVoice’s award winning expertise gained from running participatory photography projects with excluded communities around the world, we run a public training programme for practitioners who would like to learn more about the practicalities and ethics in running participatory photography projects. Our experienced trainers deliver fast paced, participatory workshops that create a forum for questions and discussions within the field. The course covers:
- What is participatory photography?
- Photography as a participatory medium
- Visual literacy
- Workshop and project design practicalities
- Facilitation skills
- Ethics, informed consent and copyright
- Understanding and working with risk
- Creating a safe space
- Working with text
- Participatory editing
We also design and run bespoke training courses. If you want to incorporate participatory photography into your work, we can train your staff team to have an understanding of the practical and ethical principles of the methodology.
