This project forms part of a PhD project by Mia Strand, and a postdoctoral project led by Dr Nina Rivers. The video provides a snapshot from their arts-based participatory research work.

This video provides an example of a transdisciplinary research project that uses arts-based research to work with Indigenous and local community members in Algoa Bay (South Africa) as co-researchers. The video shows the exhibition of the co-researchers’ photostories about the ocean, and emphasises important aspects and considerations of transdisciplinary collaborations such as the ownership of knowledge outputs, working with people as co-researchers, and the importance of slowing things down.
