      Assigment 1 – For my project, I will be finding partners to work with who would be happy to collaborate and support developing the project. As photovoice is part of my research project there is some parameters that are already set in stone ie. the topic, the timescales but there is a lot of scope for collaboration with partners and participants for the development of the programme, delivery, dissemination, evaluation etc.

      Assigment 2

      Assignment 1

      I am working collaboratively with a number of community organisations and Ireland is currently investing substantially into developing public and patient involvement in all of health and social care research. In order to develop beneficial and impactful projects, we need to involve key stakeholders at all stages of the research cycle. This starts with research priority identification and the definition of research questions. We need to understand how members of the public would ask research questions that matter to them. Collaboration with members of the public and patients requires relationship building and trust. This does not happen suddenly. So, even before developing a project outline, discussions need to take place about values, roles, benefits, ways of working. Once agreement and mutual understanding is achieved, a plan can be developed. In the way forward, I would work with all stakeholders from inception of a research focus to the dissemination stages. At all stages, benefits, roles and values need to be evident for all participants. Issues of power and control need to be verbalised and discussed.

      Assignment 1 – For my research project, I am commissioned as an individual to develop a project for a particular community of interest (cancer survivors post treatment).

      As participatory photography is the third phase of my research project there is some parameters already fixed, for example our field of research is the “Nutrition related life of Irish Cancer Survivors” and the participatory photography will focus on “the meaning of nutrition for Irish cancer survivors

      There is scope for program design however due to restrictions in Ireland, we have decided an online delivery is most practical. The program design, dissemination output and evaluation steps are to be decided on the basis of this training.

      Assignment 1
      All three approaches are included in my work but most commonly I’ll be commissioned to work with a community of interest. In my work this is often so a charity or social enterprise can better understand the lives, experiences and needs of their target beneficiaries.

      Assignment 2

      Define core purpose
      Identify Aims & Objectives – working with stakeholder/commissioners. For me, this is likely to be part of a mixed-methods approach to answering key research/evaluation questions
      Find project partners / participants
      Prepare budget
      Devise project plan
      Devise evaluation plan
      Apply funds – this usually takes the form of a bid for commissioned work for me
      Develop protection procedures
      Recruit/train/DBS staff / volunteers
      Plan workshop content / timetable
      Source venue
      Source equipment
      Implement workshops

      First off, I really enjoyed this video! Concise, but contained a ton of information. On to the work …

      Assignment one:
      My project will be closest to the third model – I will be approaching various organizations and individuals (since I work within the community, I know that there are some individuals who are important to get on board before forming formal partnerships with organizations…) to set up a project. I’m hoping that it will have some advoacy outcomes for my target group, but I am happy to have that change shape as we recruit participants. Hopefully, the participants will be more instrumental in setting these goals than the organizations.

      Assignment two: Amended project cycle

      Define core purpose, attempt to explain to my supervisor
      Supervisor does not get it
      Try again, using bullet points
      Prepare budget
      Preliminary indication that we may have funding
      Identify Aims & Objectives
      – more bullet points
      – have to write memo for supervisor’s supervisor
      – several rounds of edits on memo
      Devise ROUGH project plan
      Find project partners / participants
      – work through individual influencers in community
      – several community organizations
      – decide if we host in-person or virtual
      – decide if we host the project at our offices, another organization, public library?
      Another conversation about which funding we can actually use
      – is it federal? have long conversation about what can and cannot happen with federal funds
      Develop protection procedures
      Recruit/train co-facilitator
      – stipend?
      Plan workshop content / timetable with co-facilitator
      Confirm with venue
      – work out any transportation issues for participants! (do they need bus passes; what is parking like, etc)
      Source equipment
      Create tracking system for equipment
      – who keeps equipment after project?
      Implement workshops
      Set ground rules
      Train basic camera skills (who? me? speaker?)
      Explore visual literacy
      Go on outshoots
      Upload / Discuss images
      Identify personal project ideas
      Edit/caption images
      Discuss implications of image use
      Complete consent forms
      Project celebration!
      Contact policy influencers
      Exhibition
      – online as well as in person – can we build semi-permanent website? what needs to be altered in consents?
      Disseminate outputs
      – report to legislature, include specific photos/stories as well as link to website
      Monitoring/evaluation
      – feedback from participants so we can do again, better
      Fill out lengthy funding reports
      Iterate?

      My project will also be closest to the third model, so I appreciated hearing how PhotoVoice both leads staff of the partnering organization through the training first (before participants) and than also pays the staff of those organizations. I am curious to hear more about the evolution in thinking that was alluded to in the video about paying staff of the partnering organization because I have been having a parallel realization in my understanding after years of working with organizations in various cultures (and in considering and experiencing their perspective on how money is a different part of the equation of this type of partnership than I used to desire).

      Assignment 1 –

      In terms of the most familiar way that we work, there is the idea for a project – mapping – and then the funding application.

      But sometimes there is a pot of funding for community use, that can be utilised in different ways. For me personally, I believe the third model is the most appropriate.

      Assignment 2 –

      Find project partners / participants
      Prepare budget
      Identify Aims & Objectives
      Define core purpose
      Devise project plan
      Apply funds

      Disseminate outputs
      Monitoring/evaluation

      NOTE: Monitoring/ evaluation is something it is good to be mindful of throughout a project, so as not to leave last minute. Little and often?
