Forms of Voice: Exploring the Empowerment of Youth at the Intersection of Art and Action
Greene, Stuart; Burke, Kevin; McKenna, Maria
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v45 n3 p311-334 Sep 2013
The authors utilize Photovoice methodology to engage in an examination of the possibilities of counternarrative through the photographs, oral accounts and drawings of three inner-city youths. In the process, this article seeks to expand upon and challenge prior uses of Photovoice methodologies and Critical Youth Engagement. The authors posit the existence of an Adult-Child Imaginary which speaks to the distinction between researchers' aims for community engagement in a given project and children's desires for relationality. In the process the article suggests ways of thinking about how research listens and responds to voices of youth in creating transformative community projects.
