27 September: online event on visual methods in the Sundarbans

On 27 September 2022, the TAPESTRY project will present its work on visual methods at a virtual event. The panel is hosted by the South Asia Resilience Hub, as part of a programme of events in the lead up to the COP27 climate conference.

The session is entitled ‘Transformative resilience through visual action research techniques with vulnerable communities in Bengal delta’

The speakers are Shibaji Bose, independent consultant working with participatory visual research methods; Dr. Upasona Ghosh; Adiba Bintey Kamal, Programme Coordinator at ICCAD; Dr. Saleemul Huq, Director of ICCCAD; Mihir R. Bhatt, AIDMI.

The research represents the Sundarbans region of India and Bangladesh, as well as transboundary perspectives on the scope and limitations of transformative resistance to climate change. Two visual action research approaches, photo voice, and digital diary, were used with various community groups to explore how communities are building resilience to climate change impacts in their daily lives and how information about resilience may be translated into local-level activities.

To attend this event, register online.
