 Mill Girls of Lowell Photovoice Project - Then and Now

August 2015 - Through funding provided by the Mass Humanities Grant, Girls Inc. is pleased to be able to implement the Mills Girls of Lowell Project. The Photovoice program puts cameras in the ands of girls 10 and older and enables them to write narratives about their communities. The focus of their work was "The history of Lowell Mills girls, then and now" Since the majority of the girls that attend our programs have grown up in Lowell, we educated them on how the Mill girls lived and how theoretically this has impacted the quality of their lives today, all while learning about a very important part of Lowell history.

 Engaging Youth in Picturing Health and its Social Determinants: A Photovoice Training Workshop

Laura will be conducting a two-day workshop hosted by The Northwestern Connecticut Area Health Education Center (NW CT AHEC) in Waterbury, Connecticut  January 10th - 11th, 2013.  The workshop covers the foundations of photovoice, a participatory action research process in which people represent their points of view and experience using photographs and narratives, often for the purpose of defining strengths and gaps in health and healthcare as they relate to participants’ daily lives and communities. The purposes of the NW CT AHEC photovoice project are to describe social determinants of health in Waterbury from a youth perspective and empower participating youth to be – and to be seen as – resources in their communities.

The workshop is sponsored by The Waterbury Health Department, the  Northwestern Connecticut Area Health Education Center and the Waterbury Hospital.

  Laura's facilitated a 90-minute seminar at the 35th National Conference, Association for Medical Education in Research and Substance Abuse (AMERSA) on “Talking with Pictures: Concepts and Hands-on Experience” for researchers and clinicians. This workshop briefly covered the foundations of photovoice, provide examples of photos and narratives from work with brain injury survivors and people living with HIV/AIDS, and provide hands-on experience with several photovoice steps: (a) becoming a visual researcher, (b) discussing images and writing narratives, and (c) developing project themes. The workshop will culminate in a brainstorming session by session attendees on possibilities for adapting the photovoice methodology to their educational, research, service, and evaluation programs.

The 2011 AMERSA Executive Board and Workshop Review Committee, has chosen Dr. Lorenz's workshop, Talking with Pictures: Concepts and Hands-on Experience, for the 2010 Best Workshop Award.

(CAP) builds on Girls Inc.’s 10 years of experience with photovoice and Dr Lorenz. CAP is an after-school program that puts cameras in the hands of adolescent girls so they can take photographs of community resources and problems and share them with each other and with people who make decisions, and expands photovoice to encompass an investigation of culture and strengthen the research skill-building aspect of photovoice. Photovoice: CAP aims to enhance girls’ understanding of culture in a global sense: Project activities will take place at Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell, Lowell High School Freshman Academy, and BR21 Middle School in Vienna, Austria.
