Look Beyond – a photovoice research exhibition, will visit glór as part of its nationwide tour. The photography exhibition is the work of 16 people with lived experience of mental health difficulties. Look Beyond challenges perceptions of mental health in order to encourage positive conversation.
Look Beyond is the output of a photovoice research project conducted by Dr. Maria Quinlan and Dr. Etáin Quigley. Photovoice is a research and advocacy methodology which uses photography as a way of giving voice to people who often feel unheard and unseen in society.
The exhibition will be launched with a Talk by Ann Marie Flanagan on Thursday 1 November at 12pm. Ann Marie Flanagan is the Mid-West Regional Development Officer for SHINE - an organisation supporting People Affected by Mental Ill Health.
