PhotoVoice is an exciting and empowering approach that has been used around the world, with a wide variety of groups, ages and abilities. Through the facilitated use of photography and discussion of images, children and young people can be supported to explore and express their perspectives on a range of topics. Using the Photo Voice approach, young people can be supported to generate their own photographic work with the aim of supporting them to define, communicate and address issues of importance to them. This workshop, facilitated by Lizzie Downes, a former teacher and now lecturing at the Marino Institute, who will take participants through the basic PhotoVoice theory and guidelines, and the chance to experience some practical applications.

‘Older People Everywhere’
by Age Action Ireland
& Galway One World Centre
on Tuesday 9th April in Galway Peoples Resource Centre
The World is getting older, yet the topic of ageing and older people rarely makes the headlines in Ireland or around the World. Ageing affects us all and despite many differences between the lives of older people in Ireland and countries in the Global South (‘developing countries’), there are also many similarities. This workshop will explore the role and lives of older people in Ireland and the Global South in terms of their roles such as being care givers, leaders, farmers, as well of some of the challenges they face. We would also like to hear your views on how older people can be included in and consulted on issues that affect them, particularly when it comes to international policy on Ageing and Development.
A light lunch will be provided during the workshop.
Venue: Galway Peoples Resource Centre, St Clares Walk Merchants Rd, Galway
Date: Tuesday, 9th April
Time: 11am – 3pm
To register: Please contact Elaine (Age Action): email@example.com or: 087 6973705/01 4756989

21st March is the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, and is marked across Europe with a week dedicated to challenging racism and the promotion of interculturalism. This workshop will explore the issues of racism and inequality from a development perspective, and help participants to sharpen their analysis of how racism operates, both locally and globally, and how we address it in our teaching practice. How can we best support students’ sense of fairness, encourage critical thinking and raise their awareness of justice and equality issues, locally and globally? These workshops will offer educators an opportunity to discuss and challenge some commonly held myths and well-meaning assumptions about diversity as well as providing stimulus materials for use in the classroom.
