ARC/UNESCO/UNDP Finding a Voice Project
The Finding a Voice project (2006-08), was a collaboration between Queensland University of Technology, University of Adelaide, Swinburne University, UNESCO and UNDP. The project established a network of 15 local media and ICT initiatives across India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Local embedded researchers worked in each of these initiatives, with the goal of understanding how creative engagement with ICT can be both effective and empowering for positive social change.
The lead researchers included A/Prof. Andrew Skuse; Prof. Jo Tacchi, Prof. Stuart Cunningham and A/Prof. Jerry Watkins. For me detail on the team please follow this link.
The project resulted in an extensive number of publications, which can be found at this link. The key output associated with the project is the Ethnographic Action Research (EAR) Toolkit, which is a resource designed to help communication practitioners evaluate their work in the area of social change and empowerment. Please follow this link to the EAR Toolkit.
Research was conducted in a wide number of contexts, more detail on these sites can be found at this link.
