A visual showcase of stories often untold

What is Photovoice?

Photovoice uses photo images to capture aspects of people’s environment and experiences, to share with others.

This 5 week photography project has been designed to capture your unique experiences of the world and to help you to explore what disability pride means to you. Sometimes words are not enough. Sometimes there are no words that exist to capture how we feel about a topic. With Photovoice, words are not necessary. Every week we will each take a photo that represents what each topic means to us and we will unpack these as a group.

The pictures can then be used, along with artist statements composed by the photographers, to show the realities of the photographers lives  to the public: to illuminate, to educate and to spur change.
