Dr Colette Kelly and QUESTS Co-Chair Dr Catherine Houghton recently secured funding through the Health Research Board (HRB) Conference and Event Sponsorship Scheme 2018 to host a one-day workshop on ‘Maximising the Impact of Visual, Creative and Participatory Methods for Health Research’. Dr Colette Kelly is Director of the Health Promotion Research Centre (HPRC), NUI Galway and Chair of the Youth Engagement Group of the WHO Collaborative Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study.
The workshop, to be held early in 2019, will be facilitated by Dr Dawn Mannay and Dr Aimee Grant. Dawn is a Senior Lecturer in Social Sciences (Psychology) at Cardiff University. Her research interests revolve around class, education, identity and inequality; and she employs participatory, visual and creative methods in her work with communities. Aimee is a Wellcome Trust ISSF Fellow at the Centre for Trials Research, Cardiff University. She is an expert in qualitative methodological innovation, specifically documentary analysis, online research, participatory and visual methods.
Further details of the workshop will be announced over the coming months.
