PhotoVoice Newsletter

November 2016

Hello and welcome to our November Newsletter!

This month, our new photography competition has been launched in partnership with Professional Photography magazine. Inspired by Tatiana Correia’s image of her citizenship ceremony from our 'New Londoners' project, the theme of the competition is ‘Modern Society’.

We interview Meredith Hutchison, a photographer and photo-facilitator collaborating with marginalised groups to promote social change. Elsewhere, evolveEA, a sustainable architecture and building firm shares their new community engagement resource. Our guest blogs also include London College of Communications' student Caroline Weber, who shares her experiences of running a participatory photography programme in Malawi.

Finally, there are still places available for our November training so make sure you grab your place soon!

Featured image: "I had my citizenship ceremony last summer and to my surprise it was quite emotional. The Town Hall provides a lovely service and makes sure citizens feel welcome and appreciated. It feels like a very positive symbol of ‘real’ multiculturalism. On the day I could not quite understand why we had to do all the different bits of the ceremony – including singing the hymn and pledging allegiance to the Queen. Many people there did not know what was happening due to language problems. I started thinking about what the whole process of citizenship means and about how these ceremonies are part of the changing and evolving process of modern societies.” © Tatiana Correia 2008 | PhotoVoice | Dost | ‘New Londoners’ | UK
