In August - September 2011 PhotoVoice ran photographic workshops with three groups of young people in deprived communities in Kurbin, Albania in order to generate images that explored the issues faced by residents of their communities in three areas of life: Economic Development (Lac group), Education (Mamuras group) and child protection (Milot group).

Alongside photography skills they were introduced to concepts of ethical representation, model consent, parental permission for children under 18 and other important considerations for a responsible photojournalist. As a group they discussed the images each young person produced, helping to build a picture of the state of the community in reference to three key areas – child protection, education and economic development.

At the end of the course, the work produced and captioned by the young people was exhibited in each community, and formed the basis for ‘community engagement days’ that encouraged debate and feedback from all those who attended.
