Arts-Based Approaches to Understanding Youth Resilience in Culturally Sensitive Ways
Speakers: Linda Theron, Linda Liebenberg 
In this workshop we draw on our collective experience to showcase, and critique, a range of visual participatory methodologies (including draw-and-talk, photo elicitation, participatory video, and clay-modelling) that have supported our researching of resilience with youth from diverse cultures and contexts. We foreground the salience of participants’ and researchers’ cultural ties to the choice of methodology, as well as analyses and dissemination strategies. We include the opportunity for workshop participants to reflect, visually, on the cultural strengths, limitations, and biases they bring to the use of arts-based approaches in their own studies of resilience.
