Session Abstract (150 words): 

Since the 90’s, photovoice (PV) has been employed in different contexts with diverse individuals to allow participants to share their own point of view. Originally PV was developed to empower participants “to record and reflect their lives,” “increase their collective knowledge,” and “to inform policymakers and the broader society” (Wang et al, 1996, p. 1391). Since inception, this method has primarily been applied as a needs assessment. There are interesting and dynamic uses for PV throughout the evaluation process. As we look toward the future, it is important to think about how this can be carried forward. During this session, the presenter will provide a brief overview of recent experience and projects using PV in evaluation. Then, participants will discuss the possibilities for using PV for: pre-post testing, logic model creation, multi-site evaluations, participant-led analysis, and more. Attendees will increase their knowledge around using photography and text in their evaluation work.
