Photo Voice: Our college experience!

Recently a  group of Human Service students were asked to look around campus and take pictures of things that have promoted a sense of community  and belonging and pictures of things that have created isolation and disconnection.  Here are the images and what they meant to students.

Some of the descriptions are hard to read but if you click on them they enlarge.   They are worth reflection!

Thank-you to Amy Bohigian, local film maker and photo-voice facilitator, who inspired this approach and to Leslie Comrie and her wonderful students for their images and insights.

What has contributed to your sense of belonging or disconnection as a Selkirk Student?

  1. This was truly an awesome project to take part in. Thanks for sharing it for others to see.

  2. What a valuable project – a picture is worth a thousand words! It’s relatively easy to share and very informative/revealing!

  3. I’m glad you thought it was worthwhile Michelle! I find it it quite moving and provocative. And thanks for the feedback Laurie – it would be interesting to have other programs and campuses do something similar!
