For each meeting they decided upon a relevant topic, and between the meetings they took photos which highlighted the chosen topics. Those pictures were the basis for discussion and dialogue. With the pictures they decided to make an exhibition and together agreed on topics, picture
selection, texts and the design of the exhibition.
The exhibition is the result of a Photovoice project that was carried out by DRW, a project of Independent Living Institute in Stockholm. The project will also be published as a scientiic article.
Photovoice is a participatory research method, where participants are experts on their own life. They use photographs to tell stories to document and visualize their daily life. Photos and stories about issues important to the participants are processed in the group and can be used for an exhibition, a book or in homepages.
