Busy week for Groundwork's regional team with a series of events.
First up, on Tuesday, the North West Public Health Conference in Blackpool. We were particularly inspired by the workshop by Vincent O'Brien, Senior Lecturer in Public Health at St Martin's College which showcased some of his work in using participatory photography and video to explore the lives and health of people in settings varying from Kyrgyzstan to Salford. Of course, visual testimonies are much more powerful than dry evaluations - but Vincent also demonstrated how using video and photography helps to uncover information that would easily be missed through more traditional methods of consultation.
