Event description
A community Webinar by PVWW- Joana Bezerra, PhD, will share her experience conducting a three-day photovoice in South Africa

About this event

This webinar, by Joana Bezerra, PhD, discusses the experience of a Photovoice workshop on plastic pollution facilitated by the Rhodes University Social Innovation Hub and its Mobile Lab for photovoice and other participatory projects in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Individuals handling and recycling plastic trash and pollution participated in the three-day photovoice workshop. They took photos to represent their point of view, wrote captions, and identified the information they wanted to share with others. The workshop was an accredited short course at Rhodes University, and participants received a certificate and credit for their full participation (attending all sessions and completing all tasks).

Facilitation challenges included differences in literacy levels, writing skills, and familiarity working digitally. Dr. Bezerra will review some of the challenges faced and how they were overcome. This webinar is intended to help other programs and individuals plan for their work in similar contexts.
