Collective VOICES

A peer group of our participants were invited to the University of Hong Kong to visit the Photovoice exhibition. After the exhibition, they joined a group discussion on their feelings and reflections on the photos. They were encouraged to use a few key terms, or one short sentence to conclude their thoughts. Researchers collected all the narratives and extracted main themes.
