PhotoVoice Newsletter

March 2017

“When we want to see change, it's us who should make it happen. Learning shall not be done only at school. Learn about everything with everyone, whenever, wherever. Never stop learning. If we are not making the change that we want, then who will?”

Welcome to our March Newsletter!

This month we are pleased to announce the winner of our January photography competition and to launch our third competition which is inspired by last week's International Womens Day.

Lots of project news: The Having Our Say3 resource, developed to support those affected by sexual exploitation, nears completion as our Projects Manager, Becky Warnock begins trialling it with focus groups. Also, participants on the PhotoVoice project (Wo)manifestos for Positive Women which works with women living with HIV, share their thoughts and ideas.

In addition, we bring news of a collaboration with the World Photography Organisation as they take over our Instagram account and we share their upcoming exhibition at Somerset House, while past PhotoVoice participant Tanvir Bush takes part in our ‘Ten Questions’ series. Elsewhere, Mo Grieg writes about her collaborative photography project that was inspired by the PhotoVoice training course.
