Photovoice Project

The Photovoice Project asks you to take photos or short video of your local community to show what makes an inclusive community and what needs changing to make communities more inclusive for people of all ages with disabilities and chronic illness. 

After you take your photos or video and make contact, the research team will organise a time to chat with you about your photos or video. 

Who is it for?

Community members.

We are interested in hearing from people with disabilities and/or chronic illness, local council staff, local community organisations, local businesses, planners/ architects/developers and other general community members.
