PhotoVoice have partnered with the National Working Group network for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People to run participatory photography projects across the UK on a two- year project.
All projects have run in partnership with specialist support providers who work directly with young people, who have experienced sexual exploitation or who have been identified to be at risk.
Young people have participated in 3-month photography projects exploring different themes that offer a context to sexual exploitation including gender, power and relationships. They have also developed their understanding of visual literacy, photography and digital story telling techniques. This process has enabled them to both make sense of their experiences and share their perspectives on the issues.
On Thursday 17th October the project will launch at The Photographers Gallery, London from 6-8pm with an exhibition of work from the project – including photographic images and a screening of a selection of digital stories. http://thephotographersgallery.org.uk
