Stories of Labour – Celebrating May Day

“Stories of Labour” recognises the need for the narratives of the workers to be told as these spaces of articulation are increasingly limited, especially within the context of the various projects that has been done in CARE. Attendees shared their experiences from their fieldwork and discussed about the notion of “labour” and the relationships of work are organised.

Visually communicating lived experience: The utility of photovoice as community-based participatory research
A/P Jeffery C. Peterson 

Nov 1 (Fri), 1.30 – 2.30pm
CNM Meeting Room AS6 #03-33

 

In this presentation, we will explore the usefulness of conducting a community-based participatory research method called “photovoice.” In photovoice, participants are asked to represent their community point of view by taking photos, discussing them together, developing narratives to go with their photos, and conducting action to address issues of community concern.

In this presentation, I will present parts of several photovoice projects I have conducted for discussion though we will focus mainly on the “SNAP photovoice project.” In this project, formerly homeless individuals were approached and asked to document both the aspects of their lives that threaten to send them “back to the streets” as well as the resources that they draw upon to help them navigate the process of “home stability.”
