London-based PhotoVoice tackles disadvantage and social exclusion through photography, putting the marginalised in touch with the majority.
It has established itself as a pioneer in the sector.
PhotoVoice's mission is to build skills within disadvantaged and marginalised communities using innovative participatory photography and digital storytelling methods so that they have the opportunity to represent themselves and create tools for advocacy and communications to achieve positive social change.
PhotoVoice aims to:
- Support access and learning in the field of participatory photography through internships, volunteering opportunities, public speaking, and resource development and dissemination.
- Promote the imagery produced in the projects through old and new media, events and exhibitions.
- Design and develop participatory photographic projects specific to communities, issues and needs
- Provide training and consultancy to organisations wishing to introduce participatory photography into their work
