Facilitate your own project.
Participatory photography is the process by which people use photography to record and reflect their lives from their own point of view. Together they increase their collective knowledge about community issues and the resulting images and stories can be used to inform policy makers and the broader society about these issues with the aim of bringing about change.
To get started:
Gather a group of friends, identify 2 or 3 issues that you want to address. Tell and write stories about your experiences and take photos exploring the issue. Then, find a play to display your work - a website, local libraries or schools, art gallery, etc. Plan a presentation to discuss what you learned and show your work!
